California Center for Innovative Transportation

For 10 years, the California Center for Innovative Transportation (CCIT) delivered services addressing technical challenges,systems integration, institutional issues, business models, and change management in the transportation sector.

The new PATH combined two centers that successfully focused on technology with clear public interest goals, both of them with strong California government and industry ties, to make the most robust organization possible.
