The Mineta Transportation Institute directs several consortiums focused on key transportation-related research.
California faces significant challenges to improve mobility of people and goods and ensure the State’s transportation system is safe, efficient, accessible and convenient for all. The most effective way to develop solutions that can provide the order-of magnitude leap needed to realize our vision of convenient, accessible mobility for all people and goods in California is rigorous, applied research. The California State University Transportation Consortium (CSUTC), led by the Mineta Transportation Institute, fosters synergies the entire California State University system to conduct impactful transportation research and engage in workforce development initiatives that increase mobility of people and goods and strengthen California’s economy.
The Mineta Consortium for Transportation Mobility (MCTM), led by MTI, conducts research, education, workforce development, and technology transfer activities to improve mobility of people and goods. MCTM unifies and focuses the efforts of four outstanding institutions that represent and support the geographical, cultural, racial, and socioeconomic diversity that makes our nation strong: Howard University; Navajo Technical University; San José State University; and the University of North Carolina Charlotte.
