Established in 1996 at New York University’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, the Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management explores current and emerging challenges in transportation and infrastructure. Currently, research at the Center is focused on issues such as financing transportation systems, the role of mobile communications in mobility, the neuroscience of walking, and aviation and economic development.
In order to generate ideas and foster debate, The Center brings together leading scholars and practitioners through conferences and forums that address public policy issues facing large metropolitan regions.
In addition, the Rudin Center conducts executive education for public officials working in public agencies that draw upon leading experts and researchers in transportation and infrastructure management.
