September 11th Memorial Program for Regional Transportation Planning

The September 11th Memorial Program for Regional Transportation Planning is a lasting memorial to the three NYMTC staff members who died in the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001: Ignatius Adanga, Charles Lesperance, and See Wong Shum. The Program provides funding to graduate students to work on transportation planning projects with NYMTC or its member agencies.
