The mission of the Transportation Research Board is to provide leadership in transportation innovation and progress through research and information exchange, conducted within a setting that is objective, interdisciplinary, and multimodal. TRB facilitates the sharing of information on transportation practice and policy by researchers and practitioners; stimulates research and offers research management services that promote technical excellence; provides expert advice on transportation policy and programs; and disseminates research results broadly and encourages their implementation. A major focal point of TRB's activities, the Annual Meeting provides an opportunity for transportation professionals from all over the world to exchange information of common interest.
Organized in 1920, TRB is a division of the National Academies, which include the
National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine, and
National Research Council. The nation turns to the National Academies for independent,
objective advice on issues that affect people's lives worldwide.
