Transportation@MIT is transforming global transportation systems to meet the economic and environmental mobility needs of the 21st century.

Hundreds of MIT faculty members work in areas related to transportation, from motor vehicles to urban infrastructure planning to aviation efficiency to adaptive technologies and their influence on personal behavior. The Transportation@MIT initiative knits together the wide-ranging, robust research already under way at the Institute and creates new opportunities for education and innovation.

Transportation@MIT is led by Associate Dean of Engineering Cynthia Barnhart and draws on the strengths of three schools at MIT: the School of Engineering, the School of Architecture and Planning, and the MIT Sloan School of Management.
