Craig Cipriano, STV senior vice president and national director of zero-emissions mobility, was recently invited to serve as a member of Rutgers University’s Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center (VTC) Advisory Board.

The VTC, situated within Rutgers’ Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, is a national leader in the research and development of innovative transportation policy. It houses the National Transit Institute, which was established by Congress in 1992 to develop, promote and deliver training and education programs for the U.S. public transit industry.

Engaging with policy makers and civic leaders, the VTC conducts leading-edge research on emerging transportation topics such as shared mobility, micro-mobility, automated vehicles and big data. This research aims to provide solutions, share knowledge and influence public policy decisions on a regional and national scale. The Center’s focus extends to transportation’s relationships with the built environment, the environment, social equity, finance and the economy.

“I am honored to join the board and contribute to the national reach of VTC, furthering its mission to advance critical transportation planning and policy topics,” Cipriano said. “Engaging with the talented minds at my alma mater is something I eagerly anticipate, and I’m excited about strengthening STV’s relationship with this forward-thinking institution.”

Cipriano, a national thought leader with nearly 35 years of experience planning and executing large-scale, multi-dimensional fleet and infrastructure programs for public transit systems, leads STV’s national zero emissions mobility advisory practice. As the former president of New York City Transit’s MTA Bus Company and former interim president of New York City Transit, he leverages his unique experience to guide large-scale bus fleet and infrastructure programs. Focused on zero-emission bus (ZEB) and fleet transformations and intelligent transportation systems (ITS) technologies, he advises STV clients on practical solutions and strategies to deliver sustainable, equitable and carbon-free transportation systems.

After receiving his Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering from Stony Brook University, Cipriano earned a Master of City and Regional Planning degree from Rutgers University.
