The Multimodal Transportation and Infrastructure Consortium (MTIC) was awarded Tier I University Transportation Center status by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT). One of ten such institutions, MTIC received funding through a competitive grant solicitation to help solve existing transportation challenges and to further develop the capacity to address future needs through applied intermodal research and advanced technology. Specifically, MTIC’s research program includes projects related to intermodal and multimodal transportation that enhance economic competitiveness in six primary research areas:
- Highway Infrastructure, Operations and Security
- Geospatial Systems
- Maritime Operations and Analysis
- Multimodal Systems Operations and Analysis
- Recreation and Alternative Transportation
- Transportation Finance and Economics
MTIC includes the Rahall Transportation Institute (RTI) at Marshall University, the KTC Test Site (KTC) at the University of Kentucky, the Center for Transportation Innovation and Logistics and Distribution Institute at the University of Louisville, and the Eastern Seaboard Intermodal Transportation Application Center at Hampton University.
