AAR, TTCI create research advisory board


Yesterday, the Association of American Railroads (AAR) and Transportation Technology Center Inc. (TTCI) announced they jointly established a TTCI Research Advisory Board that will provide feedback on the AAR’s Strategic Research Initiatives, and determine how TTCI can best serve AAR affiliates and associates.

The 12-member board will include members from AAR’s Gold Associate and Affiliate programs, as well as from non-Class I railroads, commuter railroads, infrastructure and equipment suppliers, engineering consulting firms, and rail-car owners and lessors. Board members will serve two-year terms.

The advisory board will meet annually at TTCI’s facility in Pueblo, Colo., to receive updates on the AAR research program, observe and inspect various technology developments, and interact with members of TTCI’s senior management team. The board will offer input and advice to TTCI and the AAR research committees regarding the development and implementation of the AAR’s Strategic Research Initiatives Programs, according to a prepared statement.

“The addition of AAR associate and affiliate members to our research program will bring an additional dimension to our research efforts from valuable stakeholders in the railroad industry,” said TTCI President Roy Allen.
