Business Model

The Center for Urban Transportation Research at the University of South Florida is largely self-supporting through contracts and grants. All of our research personnel are non-tenure track, full-time researchers.

We provide research services, training and technical assistance to a wide range of clients.

We treat others fairly and with respect, which means that we have a long-established self-imposed policy to not compete directly with consultants whenever requests for proposals are issued in Florida. We will only serve as a non-exclusive subcontractor for RFPs in Florida, if asked, by consultants to join their team. We selectively pursue contracts out-of-state when there is an appropriate match to our skills and interests.

CUTR leadership, in collaboration with the CUTR Advisory Board, has developed a Strategic Plan which will be used to guide CUTR in the years to come.
