The FTA Annual Research Report highlights many of the achievements FTA has made this past year in support of its strategic research vision to “Deliver Solutions that Improve Public Transportation.”
The success of FTA’s National Research Program is a testament to the hard work and quality of the researchers and support staff. By working closely with customers and stakeholders, FTA continues to develop and execute a comprehensive transit research program that delivers results to the American public and provides real solutions to the transit industry.
The FTA provides assistance for a variety of research and development projects as well as demonstrations and evaluation of technology. Congress periodically requests that FTA prepare a report on research projects sponsored by the agency.
