Resources for the Media

In support of our mission as a public research institution, ITS Berkeley makes every effort to provide information and experts to the media to help shed light on transportation issues in the news. We have experts in the areas of intelligent transportation systems, traffic flow, urban planning, infrastructure, aviation, human behavior, and a number of sustainability issues, including alternative fuel vehicles and car sharing. 


Please note that our experts are often busy with the demands of teaching, research, and other responsibilities; as much advance notice as possible is helpful.
