Research

UTTRI brings together 35 experts from engineering, economics, policy, urban geography and planning and computer science. Individually, UTTRI members are internationally renowned for high quality research in transportation from the perspectives of engineering, science and humanities.

Collectively, their expertise and knowledge span the domains required to analyse practical problems in transportation policy and decision making:

  • from strategic policy formulation and integrated transportation network planning and land use modelling to operational management;
  • across every urban transportation mode used by drivers, cyclists, pedestrians and transit riders;
  • considering the implications on economic, social and environmental sustainability;
  • resting on a solid foundation of survey methods that have resulted in comprehensive travel data collected over decades on which performance measures have been built.
