Basic Information

The Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center (VTC) at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, is a national leader in the research and development of innovative transportation policy.

Established in 1998, the VTC is one of 13 research centers within the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, and includes the National Transit Institute, which was created by Congress in 1992 to design and deliver training and education programs for the nation?s transit industry.

VTC was created to facilitate informed public debate on critical transportation issues and to conduct research in areas not otherwise addressed by conventional sponsors.

The Center specializes in identifying and exploring transportation linkages to other public policy areas, such as economic development, land use, political governance, finance and social policy.
