White House, DOT announce $450M to transportation centers

WASHINGTON — As part of its University Transportation Centers (UTC) program, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) is seeking applications from universities for up to 35 UTC awards, with total funding of $450 million for the five-year period from 2022 through 2026.

“I am inspired by the cutting-edge transportation technologies our UTCs are developing,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said.

“With this investment, we’ll be able to support a new generation of visionary leaders and advance research that will help to transform our transportation system with safer, cleaner, more accessible ways for people and goods to move in this country.”
