Our Sponsors

By partnering with key administration and U.S. Department of Transportation leaders, the U.S. DOT Volpe Center maintains a central, crosscutting role in the Department and with other key stakeholders, adding value through technical excellence, innovation, and a sustained commitment to public service.

The Volpe Center is cost reimbursable, receives no direct appropriations, and is 100 percent funded by sponsored projects. Nearly 85 percent of our work is sponsored by U.S. DOT partners.

Our mandate to support the transportation enterprise is broad, and remaining projects are sponsored by state and local governments, private sector entities, and other federal agencies.

We’ve dedicated our careers to building a better transportation system and are proud to support those who keep America moving, including the following agencies:
