Our Mission

Our Mission

What We Are About

Our mission is to lead in developing transportation data and information of high quality, and to advance their effective use in both public and private transportation decisionmaking.

Our mission is the starting point for all of our programs and actions. This is a broad responsibility that derives from the congressional legislation (see Appendix A), that created the agency and established the bounds for what we do.

Our mission is translated into a strategic direction by our vision.
