The Fresno State Transportation Institute (FSTI) was established as an interdisciplinary institute in Fall 2017 with a focus on advanced transportation systems. It is the seed of a unique collaboration between California State University, Fresno’s Lyles College of Engineering, Craig School of Business, College of Social Sciences and Fresno Council of Governments. Building on a diverse set of activities, FSTI is intended to be an innovation enabler for the development and implementation of advanced multimodal and transit projects in Fresno County and beyond. Its core mission includes education, research, technical service and public outreach.
