UF to Receive Transportation Funds

The University of Florida was recently chosen as the Regional University Transportation Center and will receive $3.5 million in federal funds for transportation research. UF will also receive an extra $3.5 million in non-federal funds from the state departments of transportation, transit agencies, local agencies and private firms.

The new project is known as Southeast Transportation Research, Innovation and Education Center (STRIDE), which has three main focus areas: Safety, livable communities and economic competitiveness.

UF is partnering up with other universities in the region, including Georgia Tech, Mississippi State, North Carolina State, University of North Carolina, Florida International University, University of Alabama Birmingham and Auburn University.
