The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) announced $1.7 million in research funding for a Climate Change and Transportation Research Center at the University of California, Davis. The new Center for Emissions Reduction, Resiliency, and Climate Equity in Transportation, established through a cooperative agreement with DOT, will support the DOT Climate Change Center as well many related Department climate and research programs. 

The new Center will advance research and technologies to support clean energy goals, accelerate decarbonization of the transportation sector, strengthen the resilience of the transportation infrastructure, and address environmental inequities created by the transportation system.

The Center comprises partner institutions, including California State University Long Beach, Texas Southern University, University of California, Riverside, University of Southern California, and the University of Vermont, to collectively execute research activities.
