California Partners for Advanced Transportation Technology (PATH), has been a leader in Intelligent Transportation Systems research since its founding in 1986. Our aim is to realize a safe, equitable, efficient, and carbon-neutral transportation system for all, through research and development of advanced ideas and technologies. Our mission is to develop the solutions that address the challenges of California’s surface transportation systems with a focus on greater deployment of those solutions throughout California. 

In collaboration with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), and administered by the university’s Institute of Transportation Studies (ITS), PATH is a multi-disciplinary program with staff, faculty, and students from universities worldwide and cooperative projects with private industry, state and local agencies, and nonprofit institutions.
