The University of South Florida’s Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) has been awarded a two year, $2.8 million federal grant to continue work done through its National Center for Transit Research (NCTR) (www.nctr.usf.edu). USF is one of only 35 universities to be selected to receive a University Transportation Center grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation in 2013. The grant allows for the continuation of a program that started at USF in 1991, but requires recipients to be selected through a national competition from over 100 universities throughout the United States. USF has prevailed in all four competitions conducted for Tier I University Transportation Center grants since 2002, and is one of only three universities in the country to have done so.
