A nationwide transit innovation initiative makes its localized impact at Morgan State University, thanks to millions of dollars in federal funding. The sites are known as University Transportation Centers and are anchored at higher learning institutions throughout the country. While these centers themselves aren’t new, Morgan State’s own National Center for Transportation Management, Research and Development (NTC) is, thanks to nearly $20 million that the school said the US Department of Transportation (DOT) granted to seed the center in late March.
