The theme of the Center is Planning and Managing Regional Transportation Systems in a Changing World." Under the direction of Dr. Camille Kamga, the UTRC represents USDOT Region II, including New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Functioning as a consortium of twelve major Universities throughout the region, UTRC is located at the City University of New York, the lead institution of the consortium.
