John A. Volpe National Transportation System Center
The John A. Volpe National Transportation System Center is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation's Research and Innovative Technology Administration and is a federal, fee-for-service organization. For over 30 years, the Volpe Center has served as a link between the transportation and technology communities, by assessing the transportation community, evaluating research and development in the technology community, and assisting in the application of transportation technologies and policies.
The Volpe Center has been actively involved with a team of federal, regional and state stakeholders to integrate climate change into existing and continuing transportation, land use, coastal zone, and hazard mitigation planning processes. Other participants include their sponsors, the Federal Highway Administration, the National Park Service and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, along with the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, the Federal Transit Administration, the Federal Emergency Management Administration, and the Department of Defense. The Volpe Center provides their 'Technical Reports & Presentations' in an online library which houses a number of independent climate change related reports.
