About the Center for Transportation Studies

The Center for Transportation Studies (CTS) is pleased to host this year's summer meeting in conjunction with the Council of University Transportation Centers (CUTC).

CTS is the hub for transportation research and education at the University of Minnesota. It supports research in many disciplines, cultivates the transportation workforce, and shares new thinking with various stakeholders and audiences.

CTS was established in 1987 to meet a need for greater connection between the state’s transportation agencies and University researchers. That underlying goal—applying U of M thinking to solve real-world issues—still drives CTS today.
