MTI’s National Transportation Finance Center (NTFC) funds research in cutting-edge transportation finance practices, disseminates research and information on finance policy, and convenes events to assist policymakers with translating research to policy.
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.
Key ongoing NTFC activities include:
The Annual Norman Y. Mineta National Transportation Summit, which has been presented in partnership with the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco since 2010
Briefings for policymakers and the media
