Faculty Projects

RTP has received over $1 million through externally funded research projects to date. We partner with other university programs and departments, with outside agencies and sources like MDOT and USDOT, other universities, and with industry partnerships like CN and Union Pacific.


The RTP team organized and staffed a statewide rail transportation conference for Michigan DOT. The conference was conducted in a single day, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. The complete program schedule with all speakers is included in Appendix C.
