About Us

Leading the way on emerging transportation issues

Our interdisciplinary institute enables Alabama to lead the way on emerging issues like developing creative solutions for financing the construction and maintenance of roads and bridges, advancing transportation safety research, and evaluating the impact that a quality transportation system will have on Alabama's economic future. ATI serves as an independent resource that develops unbiased information for use by local, state, and national leaders in developing transportation policy. The result is more and better-informed decision-making that leads to innovative, data-driven, cost-effective solutions that advance Alabama's economy, safety, and quality of life through transportation.
