Led by University Transportation Research Center (UTRC) at the CUNY City College of New York, and building from the foundation of our existing legacy transportation systems, SEMPACT(Center for Social and Economic Mobility for People And Communities through Transportation) seeks to leverage recent advances in vehicle and infrastructure technologies; data; and modeling, analytics, and visualization to plan, design, implement, and operate a more equitable, resilient, and sustainable transportation system for Region 2 that supports mobility and access to opportunity for all the region’s residents and businesses. 


To advance toward these goals, the SEMPACT team will focus research in four priority areas that address both USDOT & regional needs. Work will address the statutory priority area Improving mobility of people and goods and the USDOT research priorities Economic Strength & Global Competitiveness (primary), Equity, and Climate & Sustainability. 


SEMPACT prioritize research of:

(1) accessible tools for informed transportation decision making 

(2) inclusive advanced technology applications

(3) climate resilient infrastructure

(4) green and resilient supply chains
