The UVM TRC integrates research, graduate education, and workforce development, focusing on promoting sustainable transportation systems and planning through the study of risk and resiliency, especially in northern, rural, exurban and micropolitan contexts. It provides unbiased expertise for communities and public agencies pursuing sustainable transportation solutions, while advancing the field of transportation research at the national and international levels. We define risk and resiliency broadly as critical performance measures of the efficiency, sustainability and equity of transportation systems. Our focus on risk and resiliency incorporates the study of factors that compromise mobility and strategies that promote society's successful adaptation and responsiveness to these risk factors.
