About Moving History

TRB History Committee members manage Moving History, a blog for anyone interested in transportation history. Moving History posts about all aspects of transportation history, from planning history, to technological and infrastructural history and developments, to policy history, to the development of the transportation profession. You can sign up to receive notice of new postings and contribute material to share on Moving History.

The TRB History Committee (ABG50), a standing committee of the Transportation Research Board (TRB), was founded to establish and promote the importance of maintaining a sense of history and preserving important historical archives among transportation professionals. The committee provides a forum for transportation historians, transportation professionals interested in history, custodians of transportation museums, and professional state and national government archivists and historians to exchange information and to identify gaps and opportunities to advance the preservation of transportation history.
