The strength of U.S. DOT's Volpe Center lies almost entirely in its people: their knowledge, experience, and commitment.
Our team represents a dynamic, world-class transportation resource with broad technical and institutional expertise not replicated elsewhere. Nearly two-thirds of our 600-member federal workforce is comprised of technical professionals, many of whom have advanced degrees in disciplines such as engineering, physical and social science, economics, and information systems. Volpe’s federal employees work with more than 400 on-site contractors from major private-sector consulting firms.
We are powered by transportation thought leaders, driven by tough challenges, dedicated to making a better transportation system, and committed to the public good. As dedicated public servants, we have devoted our careers to advancing a better transportation system.
