2050 REPORT SYNOPSIS
Supported by a grant from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), the Transportation Center undertook an exploration of the factors, needs, and opportunities facing U.S. transportation infrastructure in the next 35 years. The objective of the study was not to forecast the future, but to frame the possibilities and thus to inform the public and policy makers about future needs for transportation infrastructure. The outcome of this study is Mobility 2050: A Vision for Transportation Infrastructure.
