CSUTC Research

The California State University Transportation Consortium research program provides opportunites for researchers across the California State University system to conduct research and workforce development activities to advance the body of usable transportation knowledge, identify implementable solutions for California, and ensure that the transportation workforce is ready to meet the forthcoming challenges.

CSUTC research focuses on a number of high priority needs for California: congestion relief (including traffic management systems), trade corridor enhancements, improved transit and rail, pedestrian and cyclist safety projects, as well as maintenance and rehabilitation for California’s road and bridge infrastructure. 

Request for Proposals 

California’s Road Repaid and Accountability Act of 2017 (SB 1) is a comprehensive transportation funding package designed to address a wide range of transportation-related needs across California. As part of SB 1, annual appropriations of up to $2 million are made available to the California State University (CSU) for the purpose of conducting transportation research and transportation-related workforce education, training and development. The Mineta Transportation Institute (MTI) at San José State University (SJSU) leads the California State University Transportation Consortium (CSUTC) along with partners CSU Chico, CSU Fresno, and CSU Long Beach. This research funding opportunity is available to faculty (permanent or temporary) at any California State University campus. Commercial organizations, non-profits, and other universities may not respond to this RFP. The Principal Investigator(s) must be CSU faculty; non-CSU personnel may participate on research teams but funding should be limited. The deadline to apply is February 5, 2021.
