The original charter of the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI), as set down by the A&M Board of Directors in 1950, charged the agency with enlisting the resources of the college to conduct research activities involving virtually all forms of transportation.
A member of the Texas A&M University System, TTI has a breadth and depth of programs, facilities and capabilities unsurpassed by any other higher-education-affilated transportation research organization in the country. The Institute's research and development programs have resulted in significant breakthroughs across all facets of transportation.
With expertise in areas such as engineering, planning, economics, policy, public engagement, landscape architecture, environmental science, computer science and the social sciences, TTI researchers serve as objective transportation experts. They provide a resource to local, state and national agencies and groups, helping them solve transportation challenges and make informed decisions.
