“The idea of focusing on sustainability is to understand the trade-offs, so that there is no longer a single minded focus on one aspect of life to the detriment of other aspects.” – Dr. Norman Garrick

Welcome to the Center for Transportation and Livable Systems (CTLS), the University of Connecticut’s University Transportation Center funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation. The theme of our center is Sustainable and Livable Transportation Systems for Smart Growth. We’re excited about the role CTLS will play in addressing pressing national issues and research needs in transportation and smart growth.
CTLS is part of the UConn Consortium of Transportation Centers (UCTC), a trio of transportation centers that conduct complementary and collaborative research in transportation and infrastructure systems. The Connecticut Transportation Institute (CTI) and Center for Resilient Transportation Infrastructure (CRTI) complete the consortium – providing expertise in materials, security, sensing and more.
CTLS pursues an innovative, integrative, and multi-disciplinary vision of sustainable transportation systems by:
- Integrating transportation and land use.
- Leveraging technological innovation.
- Promoting sustainability in communities, mobility and the economy.
- Creating safe and efficient systems.
