ITS at TRB 2010

Right on schedule, dozens of ITS faculty members and student researchers traveled to Washington, D.C. in January to present their latest findings at the 89th annual meeting of the Transportation Research Board. TRB's Annual Meeting, which covers all modes of transportation and attracts more than 10,000 transportation professionals from around the world.

The theme for 2010 was" Investing in "Our Transportation Future – Bold Ideas to Meet Big Challenges."  Below you will find a list of UC Berkeley panelists and presenters along with the dates, times and places of their presentations. Although ITS researchers frequently collaborate with researchers from other institutions and agencies, we have only included the names of Berkeley researchers in this listing.

Former ITS Director Martin Wachs delivered the Thomas B. Deen Distinguished Lecture on Transportation Policy, Poverty, and Sustainability: History and Future, on Tuesday, January 12. Wachs, who retired from U.C. Berkeley in 2005, is currently the Director of Transportation, Space, and Technology for the Rand Corporation.
