The RAND Corporation has been conducting research on transportation since the 1960s. Today's research addresses a range of topics, including approaches to financing transportation that rely upon newer technology; transportation options for reducing greenhouse gas emissions; the interactions of land use, transportation, finance, mobility, and social patterns; the mobility of the elderly; traffic safety; traffic congestion; regulation; and federal research and development allocation. Listed in this publication are RAND research staff who work on transportation projects; note, however, that they all engage in multidisciplinary collaborations across a wider spectrum of research areas — a hallmark of RAND from its earliest days.
