Welcome to TRC
WELCOME to the TRC

The University of Florida Transportation Research Center (TRC) was established by the former Florida Board of Regents in 1972 to provide a central point through which transportation research could be performed and reported. TRC researchers have been leaders in the transportation field through active participation in various national and international organizations such as the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Transportation Research Board (TRB), and the Institute of Transportation Engineers. Investigators associated with the TRC have performed sponsored research exceeding $25 million in the past five years.

The TRC is an interdisciplinary center drawing on expertise from departments such as Computer Science, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Civil Engineering, Coastal Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Operations Research, Psychology, Occupational Therapy, and Urban and Regional Planning.

In 2007, the TRC was awarded a Tier-1 University Transportation Center (UTC) from the Research and Innovative Technology Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT). The UTC, also known as the Center for Multimodal Solutions for Congestion Mitigation (CMS), receives up to $1 million per year and matching funds from non-federal sources such as the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).

The TRC is also home to the Southeastern Transportation Research, Innovation, Development and Education Center (STRIDE), a USDOT Region 4 UTC. The center opened its doors in January 2012 and is the leading institution in a consortium of universities, which includes Auburn University, Florida International University, Georgia Tech, Mississippi State University, North Carolina State University, University of Alabama at Birmingham, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. STRIDE receives $3.5 million per year and matching funds from the FDOT. STRIDE devotes its energies to safety, livable communities, and economic competitiveness - areas that reflect a need in Region 4, the southeast as well as the nation.
