Transportation Researchers

The need for mobility is fundamental: from the vehicles we drive, to the public transit systems that deliver us from one place to another, to the enterprises that keep food, fuel, and the materials of daily life flowing. Many of our transportation needs, however, are currently met with vehicles, systems, institutions and assumptions that date back a century or more.

More than 240 MIT researchers from 15 departments in the School of Engineering, the Sloan School of Management and the School of Architecture and Planning are working every day on more energy efficient and environmentally friendly modes of transportation. Use the icons on the right to discover who is working on the solutions to these grand challenges, and how their efforts will transform the future of mobility.
