Transportation Planning Capacity Building Program

The objective of this research is to realize the research, development, and technical assistance objectives of the transportation planning capacity building (TPCB) initiative (and specifically the TPCB Programs). The FHWA requires the support of and access to multi-disciplined teams to meet the challenges of transportation planning for the twenty-first century. Services provided by the Volpe Center will be targeted at specific needs and areas of interest that will support the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) work in transportation planning capacity building as well as innovation in transportation planning processes and decision-making, transportation and land use, and transportation and community impacts. The Volpe Center will provide integrated support for transportation planning capacity building initiatives and activities via the following four program areas: (1) Assist Stakeholders in Accessing Training and education. (2) Enable Connections, Interactions, and Learning among Peers. (3) Collect/Synthesize Effective Practices and the State of the Art. (4) Assist in Solving Technical Problems.
