Transportation Research Board (TRB) Annual Meeting 2014


COG/TPB Staff Involvement at the 2014 TRB Annual Meeting

Staff from COG's Department of Transportation Planning have been participating in the TRB Annual Meeting for many years to share their latest research and learn from others about recent advances in transportation planning and engineering practice.

This year, more than a dozen COG/TPB staff attended the Annual Meeting. Some made presentations, some attended committee meetings, and some attended lectern and poster sessions to learn from others about the latest research in the transportation planning field.

The Transportation Research Board (TRB) and the TRB Annual Meeting

The Transportation Research Board (TRB) is a private, nonprofit institution associated with the National Academy of Sciences. TRB's mission is to promote innovation and progress in transportation through research:

"In an objective and interdisciplinary setting, TRB facilitates the sharing of information on transportation practice and policy by researchers and practitioners; stimulates research and offers research management services that promote technical excellence; provides expert advice on transportation policy and programs; and disseminates research results broadly and encourages their implementation."

At the TRB Annual Meeting, held each January in Washington, DC, thousands of transportation professionals from around the country and the world gather to share their research and experience related to all transportation modes. The Annual Meeting consists of more than 4,500 presentations in nearly 800 sessions and workshops addressing topics of interest to policymakers, administrators, practitioners, researchers, and representatives of government, industry, and academic institutions.
