The UF Transportation Institute (UFTI) aims to advance the transportation state-of-the-art, disseminate research results, and provide educational opportunities related to transportation across the spectrum.
UFTI brings together faculty, staff, and students from many diverse backgrounds to provide solutions to a variety of transportation problems. The Institute was created in 2013 as an umbrella organization housing several other transportation-related centers within the University of Florida. It houses the Transportation Research Center (TRC), established by the Florida Board of Regents in 1972. It also houses McTrans, the largest transportation software dissemination center in the world, and the UFTI Building Florida Transportation Technology Transfer Center, which provides training and technical assistance to professionals around the country and internationally. UFTI is home to the Southeastern Transportation Research, Innovation, Development and Education (STRIDE) Center, one of ten Regional University Transportation Centers (UTCs) funded by the US Department of Transportation (USDOT).
