Public & Intermodal Transportation

Focus: The Public and Intermodal Transportation Technical Advisory Group seeks to determine research needs in the areas of public transportation; freight traffic issues involving all transportation modes (i.e. rail, truck, port, and air freight traffic); and intermodal transportation.  This group will develop proposals for potential projects, evaluate and rank ideas for projects, and make recommendations to the Research Executive Committee on the actions to be taken.  It will also manage any projects that are funded with money from the Illinois Center for Transportation (ICT).
