U.S. DOT Volpe Center Releases Video Celebrating its Workforce

Tuesday, May 5, 2020

On the occasion of its 50th anniversary and in celebration of Public Service Recognition Week, the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) Volpe National Transportation Systems Center is proud to release “Volpe Voices,” a video tribute to honor its workforce—past and present—who have served the nation by advancing transportation innovation for the public good.  

Since its establishment in 1970, the U.S. DOT Volpe Center has proudly served the nation, 9 U.S. Presidents, and 17 U.S. Secretaries of Transportation, applying its cross-modal, multidisciplinary transportation expertise to solve the most pressing national and global transportation challenges.

“Our 50th year is turning out a little differently than planned, but our Volpe workforce is prouder than ever to serve our nation,” said U.S. DOT Volpe Center Director Anne D. Aylward. “While we might not be together physically in our Kendall Square facility, I want to thank our Volpe team for the flexibility, collaboration, creativity, and continued dedication during these challenging times.”

This video celebrates the heart of the U.S. DOT Volpe Center—its people—over the past 50 years, centered on the core Volpe Values that staff strive to embody every day.

  • Public Service – We are dedicated to serving the public honestly and objectively. 
  • Innovative Solutions – We continually anticipate and respond to global transportation challenges and emerging issues.

“As we navigate this time together, the safety, well-being, and health of our Volpe staff remains our top priority, “continued Aylward. “But thanks to our committed Volpe workforce and the construction of the new state-of-the-art facility, our future certainly looks bright.”
