Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP)

The Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) was founded in 1985 to promote environmentally sustainable and socially equitable transportation worldwide. We work with city governments and local advocacy groups to implement projects that reduce poverty, pollution, and oil dependence.


Date of Establishment:

03-May, 1985

Purpose of Organization:

The Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization incorporated in Washington, D.C. in 1985 and headquartered in New York City. ITDP’s mission is to promote environmentally sustainable and equitable transportation worldwide. We work with city governments to implement transportation and urban development projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and pollution, while boosting urban livability and economic opportunities.

ITDP’s core competence is in transportation system design, with a focus on bus rapid transit (BRT); travel demand management (TDM), including road user charging and parking reform; non-motorized transport (NMT); transport and climate policy; and, more recently, pedestrian and transit oriented development (PTOD). ITDP is comprised of some of the world’s leading experts in sustainable urban transportation, and has extensive experience confronting problems of congestion, pollution, and social exclusion in numerous cities worldwide through policy reform and project implementation. All of ITDP’s work seeks to balance low-carbon growth and planning with strategies that are socially equitable and economically efficient.
