  • Abstract:
    In October 2008 the Midwest Transportation Consortium (MTC) began its

    second of three years as a Tier I University Transportation Center (UTC).

    Its theme, “Transportation Safety through Improvements in Management

    Information Systems,” reflects the strong emphasis on safety in the current

    federal transportation policy bill (SAFETEA-LU).

    The MTC is composed of Iowa’s three Regent universities: Iowa State

    University (ISU) (lead organization), The University of Iowa (UIowa),

    and the University of Northern Iowa (UNI). Located in a largely rural

    region, the MTC generally focuses on intercity/rural traffic safety for

    motor vehicles. All three universities have conducted and are conducting

    traffic safety research, each within a specific niche:

    • ISU—Crash statistics and analysis to support safety in the design

    and operations of roadways

    • UIowa—Human factors to improve safety

    • UNI—Geographic information systems and statistical tools to

    conduct safety analysis
