A Global Perspective
Effective transportation is the circulation system for a healthy economy—not only in the United States, but throughout the world. Transportation research stimulates advancements in trade and economic productivity and helps ensure that supply chains are as efficient as possible. Through international transportation research, the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) is sharing its best practices in transportation planning, design and operation with countries around the world and learning about their transportation practices to collaboratively advance transportation knowledge globally.
In 2007, TTI launched an international research initiative, with the goal of sustaining a research program of $1 million or more per year. The relationships that develop between TTI and international transportation organizations and researchers through this initiative will ultimately forge new perspectives and ideas leading to solutions to global transportation challenges. These joint efforts are enhancing transportation infrastructure and promoting a vibrant global economy as our world population continues to grow.
