The Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) addresses complex transportation challenges and opportunities with innovation, objectivity and unmatched technical expertise. Our researchers in engineering, planning, economics, policy, public engagement, environmental sciences, data sciences, social sciences — and more — develop practical, implementable products and strategies. We ensure that our project sponsors have the research-based results they need to make informed decisions. TTI researchers also play a key role in educating the next generation of transportation professionals — training students both in the laboratory and in the classroom.
The Texas A&M Transportation Institute develops solutions to the problems and challenges facing all modes of transportation. The institute conducts over 700 research projects annually with about 200 sponsors at all levels of government and the private sector. In the laboratory and the classroom, TTI researchers help prepare students for transportation careers.
Recognized as one of the premier higher education-affiliated transportation research agencies in the nation, TTI’s research and development program has made significant breakthroughs across all facets of the transportation system. TTI research is widely known as an excellent value with a proven impact of saving lives, time and resources.
With headquarters at Texas A&M-RELLIS in Bryan, the institute maintains a full-service safety proving grounds facility; environmental and emissions facility; sediment and erosion control laboratory; visibility research laboratory; and driving simulation laboratory, as well as other laboratories, including pavements, materials and structures labs in the Center for Infrastructure Renewal. TTI has seven urban offices in Texas — Arlington, Austin, Dallas, El Paso, Houston, San Antonio and Waco — and offices in Washington, D.C., and Mexico City, Mexico.
