The U.S. DOT Volpe Center calls upon its elite corps of experts to develop the solutions that are shaping the nation’s transportation systems, technology, and performance.

Our multidisciplinary staff of 600 federal employees work across all modes of transportation, and collaborate with local, state, and federal agencies; academia; and industry.

More than 82 percent of the Volpe Center’s federal workforce are technical professionals, and half of staff have advanced degrees, including 13 percent who hold doctorates.

One of Cambridge’s largest employers, the U.S. DOT Volpe Center supplements its world-class federal team with approximately 325 on-site contractors, access to other off-site subject matter experts, and collaboration with our academic neighbors.
