Celebrating 50 Years of Transportation Innovation

UGPTI is celebrating 50 years of service to those who depend on the safe and efficient movement of people and goods. To kick off the celebration we're observing National Transportation Week a little early this year so that we can share the festivities with students, faculty and staff on campus before the end of spring semester.

National Transportation Week, normally celebrated during the third week of May, is an opportunity to increase the awareness and appreciation of the transportation industry and celebrate the transportation professionals who keep our country on the move. View more history
