Rutgers' Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation (CAIT)
is engaged in research, education, and technology transfer activities
that address every aspect of transportation and infrastructure. This
includes critical issues such as mobility, congestion, bridge and road
health monitoring and rehabilitation, asset management, safety, and
CAIT is based at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and is a
Tier I University Transportation Center (UTC), one of an elite group
of academic research institutions sanctioned and supported by the U.S.
Department of Transportation.
The center partners with government, industry, and academia to solve
mounting infrastructure challenges, advance state-of-the-art
technologies, and prepare the next generation of transportation
Located in central New Jersey, CAIT is amid the most densely populated
transportation corridor in the United States. Taking advantage of our
proximity to the nation's most heavily traveled roadway network, third
largest port system, busiest rail line, and four major international
airports, CAIT researchers use the area as an in situ laboratory and
test bed for real-world solutions.
Addressing the broad spectrum of multimodal transportation, CAIT is
helping to meet the need for safe, efficient, and environmentally
sound movement of people and goods in our nation and beyond.
