U.S. DOT Volpe Center 2017 Annual Accomplishments

The U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) established the John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center (Volpe Center) in 1970 to serve as a federal resource positioned to provide world-renowned, multidisciplinary, multimodal transportation expertise on behalf of U.S. DOT’s operating administrations, the Office of the Secretary, and other organizations.

This document, our Annual Project Accomplishments, represents some of our best work of 2017 and underscores our sustained support to U.S. DOT and others. 

The Volpe Center works to maximize linkages throughout U.S. DOT and the broader transportation community. Volpe continuously seeks synergies among our projects and works to transfer best practices, lessons learned, findings, and technologies across U.S. DOT and beyond.
