Welcome to the William and Barbara Leonard Transportation Center

Transportation plays a major role in the Inland Empire of Southern California, and the William and Barbara Leonard Transportation Center is the voice for an integrated and sustainable transportation system in our region. The Inland Empire is an inland port region expected to grow exponentially in the logistics and transportation sector. The region, with informed decisions, can use this growth to develop a strong economic base.


Our focal points include transportation management, the impacts of technology on transportation and logistics, and transnational studies. Research informs our approach to addressing these matters. Research also influences our education initiatives and community outreach efforts, which in turn substantiate policy produced by the LTC. The Center seeks solutions to assist residents, businesses, government and nonprofit agencies, and international partners work together on improving sustainability and life in the Inland Empire.
