Mission Statement




Our aim is to advance understanding and support for sustainable transportation as an essential component of livable communities and cities. The Institute studies and evaluates the ways and means of creating more life-affirming transportation systems and disseminates this information to both the public and decision makers.




Transportation Choices also partners and collaborates with academics and advocates as well as city planners, engineers, architects, public health planners, and allied professions to illuminate the central role that sustainable transportation plays in the vibrancy of communities.




Transportation Choices conducts applied research on sustainable transportation topics for public agencies and private foundations. The Institute operates in the niche between the more agency or firm-specific work done typically by consulting firms and the more theoretical research done by academic institutions.




Transportation Choices provides educational and training in sustainable transportation to practicing professionals, public officials, and advocates for sustainable transportation policy. The Institute conducts research on a number of key topics.
