UVA TTA fosters a safe, efficient and environmentally sound transportation system by improving the skills and knowledge of local transportation providers through training, technical assistance and technology transfer.

How do we achieve our broad mission?

  • We offer informative, innovative, and affordable training and professional development programs tailored to meet the workforce development needs of Virginia’s state and local government agencies in order to improve the level of transportation services provided to the traveling public.
  • We enhance the level of service and depth of programs and services offered by actively soliciting feedback from sponsors, clients, and participants.
  • We foster and coordinate training partnerships among local, state, and federal transportation agencies and private sector organizations in Virginia.
  • We provide responsive technical assistance support to transportation officials in Virginia’s cities and towns to help find solutions to local transportation problems.
