Portland State University has secured a five-year grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation for transportation research, education and outreach. Portland State's Transportation Research and Education Center, TREC, will administer the grant, expected to be worth up to $15.6 million. The grant names TREC's National Institute for Transportation and Communities program, or NITC, as one of five national university transportation centers. TREC will expand the NITC program and add new partners University of Arizona and University of Texas Arlington. Existing partners University of Oregon, Oregon Institute of Technology and University of Utah remain partners in the Portland State-led program. The NITC program will focus on four research areas: increasing access to opportunities; improving multi-modal planning and shared use of infrastructure; advancing innovation and smart cities; and developing data, models and tools. Among the 11 projects funded in the first year of the grant are: TREC Director Jennifer Dill said the grant affirms the NITC program's contributions to improving transportation nationwide. "Since our center's founding in 2006, we've provided the research and insight to help transportation agencies serve all users," Dill said. "We're honored to continue leading this charge for the next five years." The latest grant means TREC has brought Portland State $48 million from a single federal program in the last 10 years. The requirement that each federal dollar be matched from a nonfederal partner has multiplied the effect of that investment, creating fruitful partnerships with more than 100 agencies and organizations nationally, including the Portland Bureau of Transportation, Metro, TriMet and the Oregon Department of Transportation. "This grant recognizes that Portland State research has shifted the national conversation around transportation," said Portland State President Wim Wiewel. "It used to center on moving as many cars as quickly as possible. Now we ask how transportation can give people access to opportunities and best serve our communities." U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer of Oregon said Portland State is a natural choice to host a national transportation center. "With Portland on the front lines of the transportation technology and mobility changes that are redefining livability, there is no better place than Portland State University. "Portland State's international reputation for ground-breaking research on multimodal transportation, strong community partnerships, and urban sustainability will ensure that the national center will continue to be successful in Portland." Under the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act competition, U.S. DOT received 212 applications for 35 grants creating five national centers, 10 regional centers and 20 lower-level centers. National centers must obtain matching funds equal to the $15.6 million grant amount, distributed over federal fiscal years 2016 through 2020. TREC, the Transportation Research and Education Center at Portland State, houses the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (the U.S. Department of Transportation's national center for livable communities), the Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation and the transportation data archive Portal. TREC supports transportation decision-making through primary research and educates current and future transportation professionals. http://trec.
