About the Rudin Center

The Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management at NYU’s Wagner School seeks to improve the flow of people and goods in the New York metropolitan area. We draw upon scholars, graduate students, and public officials who participate in our public forums and shape our research. We also prepare emerging leaders in the transportation field, explore how new technologies will influence mobility, and study how emerging patterns of work will affect locational preferences.

We conduct research on topics such as the challenges women face when riding public transportation, the need to improve accessibility, and the policy issues brought about by emerging autonomous technologies. The Rudin Center was named in recognition of a gift from Lewis Rudin and receives support from leading firms in transportation, finance, and communications. The director of the Center is Sarah M. Kaufman.
