The Eno Center for Transportation is a nonprofit, non-partisan think tank in Washington, DC with a mission to seek continuous improvement in transportation and its public and private leadership in order to increase the system’s mobility, safety and sustainability.[1] The Center was created and endowed in 1921 in Westport, Connecticut, by William Phelps Eno, a pioneer in the field of traffic control.

Objectives[edit]

The Foundation engages in three primary activities:

  • Professional Development Programs. The Eno Center for Transportation Leadership (CTL) provides training and education across the career span of professionals from all modes of transportation to prepare public and private sector professionals with the skills needed to understand and manage our most pressing transportation issues.
  • Policy Summits bring together public and private sector leaders to discuss important emerging issues in the transportation field. The goal of these non-partisan forums is to share information and perspectives, consider innovative approaches to transportation problems, and develop a consensus for future action.
  • Publications and Policy Research. The monthly Eno Brief addresses current policy, legislation, or ideas affecting all modes of transportation. It updates current Board activities and highlights transportation studies and meetings. Eno sells a wide variety of transportation publications and has recently published a textbook, Intermodal Transportation: Moving Freight In A Global Economy. The Eno Policy and Finance team also releases their free reports on transportation issues on their website. In 2015, Eno brought on Jeff Davis as a Senior Fellow to publish Eno Transportation Weekly (ETW) and ETW Express, a weekly run-down of current federal transportation related legislation and political action.

Board[edit]

The Eno Board of Directors includes former Secretary of Transportation Norman Y. Mineta and former Secretary of Transportation James (Jim) H. Burnley IV.
