National Transportation Finance Center

In recognition of the critical role that transportation finance plays in transportation policy making, the Mineta Transportation Institute established MTI’s National Transportation Finance Center (NTFC). The NTFC funds research in cutting-edge practices in surface transportation finance and disseminates the results widely to aid policy makers.

NTFC emphasizes research into “smart” finance options – revenue and finance tools that not only raise needed transportation revenues but also promote social goals, such as environmentally sustainable transportation systems, congestion management, and social equity.
