April 9th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Morgan State University announced this round of federal funding is part of an extensive Biden administration commitment to transportation innovation and research. The Sustainable Mobility and Accessibility Regional Transportation Equity Research Center (SMART) consists of partner institutions Howard University, University of Delaware, University of Maryland, University of Pittsburgh, University of Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia University.  Inadequate access to affordable transportation and transit deserts in the region’s urban communities, coupled with growing congestion along major interstate corridors such as I-95 and I-66, present persistent challenges for residents and policymakers alike. The SMART Center will work with state departments of transportation in the region to facilitate innovation, strategic planning and the development in the Mid-Atlantic region.
