USC Receives Federal Grant for Transportation Research.

The Research and Special Programs Administration granted $262,200 to the University of Southern California (USC) to operate a university-based center of excellence in transportation on the campuses of USC and the California State University at Long Beach.

The grant supports the National Center for Metropolitan Transportation Research (METRANS), established last year under a similar grant. METRANS is one of 33 university transportation centers (UTCs) granted funds by U.S. DOT. The UTCs include more than 80 schools throughout the United States. All of the centers conduct combined programs of research, education, and technology transfer activities.
