National Transportation Center at UMD Awarded $2.8M from US DOT
The U.S. Department of Transportation (US DOT) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Research and Technology has awarded the National Transportation Center at the University of Maryland (NTC@Maryland) $2.8 million for research, education and outreach activities.
In 2013, NTC@Maryland was selected as one of only five national transportation centers in the US DOT University Transportation Centers competition. NTC@Maryland is centered on the US DOT's strategic goal of economic competitiveness. The center has three focus areas: freight efficiency for domestic shipping and for our international land, air, and sea ports; highway congestion mitigation with multi-modal strategies; and smart investments in intercity passenger travel facilities.
Each federal dollar invested in NTC@Maryland is matched dollar-for-dollar by state and local funds. This new installment of federal funds has brought the total funding resources to $11.2 million including federal, state, and local contributions.
