Bureau of Transportation Statistics
The 1991 Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA)
established the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) for data
collection, analysis, and reporting and to ensure the most
cost-effective use of transportation-monitoring resources. The
Bureau strives to increase public awareness of the nation's
transportation system and its implications and improve the
transportation knowledge base of decision-makers.

The John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center in
Cambridge, Massachusetts, is an internationally recognized center of
transportation and logistics expertise. Their work includes a broad
mix of projects that cut across traditional transportation modes and
Midwest Transportation Knowledge
Network (MTKN) The MTKN is a network of midwestern transportation libraries
devoted to increasing collaboration among the region's transportation libraries and information centers so managers, engineers and planners are better able to find and apply the most recent, credible, and validated technical information to their current projects.
National Transportation Library
The National Transportation Library at the Bureau of Transportation
Statistics is a repository of materials from public and private
organizations around the country. The site includes the ability to

owned and operated research facility in McLean, Virginia.
TFHRC provides FHWA and the world highway community with the most
advanced research and development related to new highway
technologies. The research focuses on providing solutions to complex
technical problems through the development of more economical,
environmentally sensitive designs; more efficient, quality
controlled constructions practices; and more durable materials.
US DOT Federal Highway
Administration (FHWA) Wisconsin Division
The FHWA provides expertise, resources, and information to
continually improve the quality of the nation's highway system and
its intermodal connections. The site has full text of Administration
