Center for Transportation Innovation
The Center for Transportation Innovation, housed in the J.B. Speed School of Engineering was created in 2002. The center grew out of a collaborative effort with the University of Kentucky and the state’s Transportation Cabinet. In 2002, the reauthorization of the Transportation Equity Act provided earmark funding for the Academy for Community Transportation Innovation, which is housed at the University of Kentucky. At the same time, legislation authorized $500,000 from the allocation to establish a collaborative program at J.B. Speed School of Engineering. The goal of the proposed center is to work with various units within UK, UofL, the Transportation Cabinet, and the U.S. Department of Transportation to advance the cause of transportation research for the betterment of the commonwealth in general and more specifically the Louisville metropolitan area.
