2020 ANNUAL REPORT TRANSPORTATION RESEARCH BOARD
About TRB and the National Academies The Transportation Research Board (TRB) is one of seven program divisions of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The National Academies provide independent, objective analysis and advice to the nation and conduct other activities to solve complex problems and inform public policy decisions. The National Academies also encourage education and research, recognize outstanding contributions to knowledge, and increase public understanding in matters of science, engineering, and medicine. Because TRB is housed within the National Academies, TRBâs staff and volunteers have unequalled access to members of the National Academies and their expertise. TRBâs mission is to provide leadership in transportation improvements and innovation through trusted, timely, impartial, and evidence-based information exchange, research, and advice regarding all modes of transportation. TRBâs mission is accomplished through the hard work and dedication of nearly 11,000 volunteers and a staff of 133 professionals.
