Western Transportation Institute

Advancing rural transportation through research and education

We live and work in rural communities, we understand the critical roles rural transportation plays in the lives of people, in the environment and in the economy. We know that Rural Research Matters.

We draw from our eight integrated research groups to create solutions that work for our clients, sponsors and rural transportation research partners. While WTI focuses on rural issues, some of our research addresses the concerns of the urban environment. Whatever the objective, we bring innovation and expertise to each WTI transportation research project.

WTI's main facility with its state-of-the-art labs is adjacent to the Montana State University campus in Bozeman, Montana. We have additional offices in Alberta, Canada, and central Washington, and a large testing facility in rural Montana near Lewistown. Contact us to find out how to address your rural transportation research needs.

For the 2015 summer, we are hosting the Summer Transportation Institute.
