In order to promote research and development in transportation-related activities in Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands, the Puerto Rico Transportation Technology Transfer Center was created on April 1, 1986 in the Department of Civil Engineering and Surveying of the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez Campus.


The Center is one of 58 centers throughout the United States under the Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP). The Puerto Rico Transportation Technology Transfer Center provides training, service, and technical information to local officials of the 78 municipalities, the Puerto Rico Department of Transportation and Public Works and the Virgin Islands Department of Public Works.


This website serves as a communication tool with our stakeholders to present information about the activities, services, and programs developed to improve transportation activities by transferring the latest technology, research, and developments to public officials.
