Advanced Transportation Technology Institute

The objective of this project is to conduct an outreach program of technology transfer, technical assistance, and information sharing that supports FTA programs related to electric-drive vehicles and other clean fuel sources--harnessing and transferring research results and benefits to the transit industry and national parks more effectively. Ongoing efforts within FTA to advance fuel cells, alternative fuels, and electric-drive technologies provide the foundation for moving towards a cleaner and more efficient way of transporting the traveling public. The Advanced Transportation Technology Institute (ATTI) is a nonprofit organization conducting an outreach program supporting federal efforts to encourage technology transfer, technical assistance, and increased communication and dissemination of information on energy-efficient, low-emissions vehicle technologies in transit applications. The project activity aims to: (1) improve the industry's understanding of, interest in, and use of clean and efficient buses through the implementation of a coordinated information, technology transfer, and outreach program; (2) provide professional and technical assistance to transit agencies and national parks in the commissioning and deployment of clean, efficient transit vehicles; and (3) develop material and/or procedures that supports the clean, efficient transit vehicle industry. The U.S. Department of Transportation, through FTA, has a significant interest in the advancement of clean and efficient vehicle technology in transit applications and the national parks.
