The U.S. Department of Transportation programs highlighted include the Technology Sharing of the Office of the Secretary, Transportation Systems Center activities, Urban Mass Transportation Administration planning systems, and major research, development, and demonstration programs. The technology transfer programs of the Federal Highway Administration described include details on research implementation, experimental projects, demonstration projects, and National Highway Institute programs and the internal-technology-transfer delivery system established to conduct this function. Some of the principles and successful approaches being used by state highway and transportation agencies to conduct effective technology-transfer programs are also described. (Author)
