Transportation research at the Lewis Center is conducted in close partnership with the UCLA Institute of Transportation Studies (ITS). Since its inception in 1992, ITS has supported hundreds of UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs students with over $2 million in scholarship funding, which is relatively unique among UCLA research centers in both scope and scale. The Institute of Transportation Studies also enriches the School of Public Affairs curriculum by regularly funding special topics courses in transportation studies; and actively link transportation research with policy and planning practice through highly successful programs such as the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Symposium on the Transportation/Land Use/Environment Connection. ITS is also home to the nation’s most widely read transportation research magazine, ACCESS Magazine.
