Title III: University Transportation Centers

SAFETEA-LU Title III Section 5338 (d)(2) designated eight university transportation centers at funding levels ranging from $400,000 to $2,000,000 for fiscal years 2006-2009. These centers have the same UTC programmatic requirements as the Centers authorized by Section V. While the funding for these Centers comes from the Transit Title of SAFETEA-LU, they are not "transit" centers mandated to undertake transit-related research. One major difference with these Centers is that the level of funding and the length of the grant vary by Center (table 2) and they are not required to obtain non-Federal matching funds.

The Title III UTCs and their corresponding strategic themes for 2006-2009 are listed in table 7.
