Welcome to the Transportation Program at Old Dominion University. The
surface transportation system impacts the daily life of every person. A
well-functioning transportation system helps ensure the economic
vitality of a region by allowing the safe and efficient movement of
goods and people. Unfortunately, traffic congestion, safety concerns,
and environmental issues have all become major issues in many urban areas.
The Hampton Roads area is ideally suited to serve as the home to a
program in transportation, with a variety of transportation modes
converging within a congested, urban environment. Freight movement,
congestion, safety, land use, and emergency management are all
important, relevant topics in the region.
Old Dominion University is actively involved in addressing many of these
issues at the local, state, national and international levels. This web
site provides details on our surface transportation research, education,
and outreach programs.
