Welcome to the Center for Transportation Studies
The Center for Transportation Studies (CTS) is an interdisciplinary, university-wide center located within the UMSL College of Business Administration. The Center has long been recognized for its research efforts in all modes of Transportation and additionally offers a comprehensive, robust teaching component where students have the opportunity to earn a Minor in Transportation. CTS faculty are drawn from academia and industry and are noted for their outstanding work in industry, logistics and supply chain management.
The Center for Transportation Studies (CTS), initiated in 2000, has been supported through endowments created by the Mercantile Library and the John W. Barriger III Railroad Library.
Students and faculty of the Center for Transportation Studies have performed a large number of funded and non-funded research projects, reports, and publications. In addition to this body of published research, the Center for Transportation Studies has also worked to develop a strong Transportation curriculum for undergraduate students at UMSL.
As the Center for Transportation Studies at the University of Missouri-St. Louis looks to its third decade of existence, we hope to provide a balance of research and teaching that is aimed at addressing transportation issues and producing students prepared to enter the fields of transportation, logistics, and supply chain management.
