The Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) works to promote environmentally sustainable and equitable transportation policies and projects worldwide.

Programs include bus rapid transit, congestion pricing, pedestrianization, bicycle and pedestrian planning, brownfield revitalization, bicycle and cycle rickshaw modernization and emerging work in health-service delivery logistics. All projects are used to leverage additional resources from international development institutions and encourage private-sector participation.
