ULTRANS and the new Deputy Director


Continuing the UC/State of California tradition of exchanging key personnel and scholars for the sake of better integration of theory and practice, Caltrans Division of Transportation Planning Chief Joan Sollenberger has accepted a one-year appointment as Deputy Director of the Urban Land Use and Transportation Center (ULTRANS) at the UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies (ITS-Davis) beginning November 2, 2009.
"Joan’s work at ULTRANS will help to advance the data/modeling partnership between Caltrans and UC Davis to a new level” said Martin Tuttle, Caltrans’ Deputy Director for Planning and Modal Programs. “I am sure other states and universities will look at this partnership as an innovative approach to address major policy issues,” he said.
Welcome Joan!
