Transportation Research Center (TRC) Utilization
Growth Towards Being a Leading Proving Grounds and Mobility Testing Organization in North America
Honda purchased the Transportation Research Center in the 1980’s from the state of Ohio and asked The Ohio State University to continue managing and operating TRC Inc. as an independent proving ground on Honda’s behalf – where surplus funds from the operation would be reinvested in transportation research and facilities upgrades and to fund other endowments at the College of Engineering. To date, more than $54 million has been generated by TRC Inc. for Ohio State.
