CTS Councils provide a forum for transportation professionals and researchers to exchange information on current transportation issues and trends. They bring together University faculty and staff with practitioners from the public and private sectors to recommend direction and participate in improving the Center's research, education, and engagement programs.

Four councils support the Center's activities in transportation research, and a fifth council supports educational and engagement efforts.

Research Councils

Activities of the four CTS Research Councils include providing advice during research project activities, identifying and advancing emerging research needs and opportunities, participating in seminars and other mechanisms to disseminate research results, and assisting in planning the annual CTS Transportation Research Conference.

Education and Engagement Council

The CTS Education and Engagement Council provides advice that helps CTS improve undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education opportunities in transportation. Members also examine how CTS can better disseminate information and provide public services that link University resources and user organizations.
