Mid-America Transportation Center


MATC is constantly making fundamental advancements in basic and theoretical research related to improving the safety of and minimizing the risk to the U.S. surface transportation system. Appropriate transportation agencies use these findings to enhance accessibility and mobility for all components of modern transportation systems.

MATC's research portfolio specifically seeks to:

  1. Foster linkages among all modes of the transportation system.
  2. Improve the livability of rural and urban environments.
  3. Develop a systems-based approach for quantifying infrastructure, financial, and operating risks that can be utilized by all transportation agencies.
  4. Increase the overall safety of the surface transportation system users.
