Good planning is fundamental to the successful completion and good performance of all transportation projects. Planning is also among the most interdisciplinary of transportation functions. Planners are, or work with, engineers, urban developers, economists, policy analysts, geographers, environmental specialists, designers, architects, and a host of other disciplines. The role of the Kentucky Transportation Center (KTC) Planning program functional area is to coordinate research involving the transportation planning function across the various program areas of KTC and indeed, where possible, across the University. The Planning program area conducts research on data and data processing for decision making, travel models, advanced technologies, and multimodal transportation, almost always in conjunction with other program areas.
