About Us

The National Center for Applied Transit Technology – known as N-CATT – is a technical assistance center funded through a cooperative agreement with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

“N-CATT’s mission is to provide small-urban, rural, and tribal transit agencies with practical, replicable resources that help them apply technological solutions and innovations”.

We recognize that local and regional goals, cultures, and resources vary so that solutions and the ways to reach them likewise vary. By sharing case studies, researching technologies, and offering a helping hand, we offer a bridge to you, your stakeholders, and your communities to technologies that enable efficiencies, on-demand transportation, multimodal and program coordination, and, perhaps most importantly, a creative mindset. We are not mere technology boosters; we seek to adapt right-sized and appropriate technology solutions that solve problems and enable goals to be reached.
