Transportation Policy and Planning

What We Do

Our Center for Transportation Policy and Planning equips transportation decision makers with the information necessary to make smart investments in the planning, development, management, operations, and financing of transportation systems and agencies.

We conduct economic and social science analyses on a wide range of problems across all transportation modes at the federal, state, regional, and local levels. We apply our expertise to a diverse array of projects, including

  • The creation of alternative transportation systems at national parks
  • Cost-benefit analyses of transportation policies
  • Design and implementation of national transportation workforce development strategies and programs

Our products help transportation decision makers deliver a world-class transportation system that ensures that people and goods will reach their destinations safely, on time, and with minimal environmental impact.


Our work is organized into three divisions—each specializing in a different facet or discipline of transportation policy and planning:
