Center Overview

The Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center (VTC) is the nucleus of transportation training and education, policy, and research at Rutgers University. The university established the center in 1998 to continue its tradition as a leader in research and education on urban affairs and public policy at the national, state, and regional levels. VTC was created to facilitate informed public debate on critical transportation issues and to conduct research in areas not otherwise addressed by conventional sponsors. The Center specializes in identifying and exploring transportation linkages to other public policy areas, such as economic development, land use, political governance, finance and social policy. VTC includes the National Transit Institute, which was created by Congress in 1992 to design and deliver training and education programs for the nation’s transit industry.
