The National Transit Institute, at Rutgers, The State University of
New Jersey, was established under the Intermodal Surface
Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 to develop, promote, and deliver
training and education programs for the public transit industry.
The National Transit Institute's mission is to provide training,
education, and clearinghouse services in support of public
transportation and quality of life in the United States.
We identify needs; we promote, develop, and deliver high quality
programs and materials through cooperative partnerships with industry,
government, institutions, and associations; and we serve as a catalyst
for enhancing skills and performance in public transportation.
In our vision spanning the next decade, we will be first in the minds of
people who are concerned with training, education, and related
services in support of public transportation.
We will be the premier clearinghouse resource for information and
assistance in this area. We will be a valued partner with industry,
public transportation service providers, Rutgers University, and trade
associations. We will be regarded throughout the industry as an
innovative and flexible organization that applies best practices in
the services it provides to its customers.
NTI was established in 1992 at Rutgers,
the State University of New Jersey under the Intermodal
Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA). In 1999, we
became part of the Alan
M. Voorhees Transportation Center, housed at the Edward
J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University. NTI is funded by a grant from the
Federal Transit Administration.
