Institute of Transportation Studies
Support Cleaner Transportation and a More Sustainable Future on Give Day!

Never has the hope for a cleaner, more livable future been more urgent than at this moment. UC Davis, one of the most sustainable universities in the world, is at the forefront. 

This year, the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Davis (ITS-Davis) celebrates its 30th Anniversary. ITS-Davis is the leading university center in the world on sustainable transportation. We conduct innovative and objective research that informs science-based transportation policy and strategic business decisions. Our programs emphasize advanced vehicle technologies, alternative fuels, land use planning, consumer behavior, new mobility, and transportation equity.

For 30 years, we have had a strong commitment not just to research, but interdisciplinary education. ITS-Davis hosts a widely acclaimed graduate degree program that draws from 34 academic disciplines to meet the world’s growing need for qualified transportation professionals.

Ryan McCarthy ’09 was a former advisor to the California Air Resources Board. He is now the Director of Climate & Clean Energy for the Weideman Group.  He says his experience at ITS-Davis was invaluable.  “It’s the combination of analytical training, relevant issues, and exposure to researchers, policymakers, and business that contribute to ITS.  There’s no better place to explore the new technology and policy than ITS-Davis.  You can change the world with what you’re doing at ITS.  That may sound kind of hokey, but what they come up with may be the next new policy idea.”

Join us in celebrating 30 years of ITS-Davis! Your gift supports the next generation of leaders like Ryan, who are having a tremendous influence on the policies and practices that will create a better and equitable future for us all.

Time is running out to make an impact! Join us!
