  • What We Do

    DRISI's greatest asset is our staff. We build and leverage our mission-critical skills and knowledge and organize staff and resources to deliver the highest quality transportation research and system information solutions to our customers.

  • Our History
    • Fiscal year 2012–13 was a year of new beginnings and opportunities as the Division of Research and Innovation and the Division of Transportation System Information as we merged to become the new Division of Research, Innovation and System Information (DRISI).
    • This allowed the two divisions to combine their resources to more efficiently provide Caltrans with the research and data solutions needed to make informed decisions that improve California’s transportation system.
    • DRISI was launched in the 2013–14 fiscal year by developing and adopting a new three-year strategic plan to define our role in furthering Caltrans' Mission, Vision and Goals.
    • We adjusted our division purpose and goals to better reflect the critical role our division would play in advancing California's transportation system, developing comprehensive solutions, and creating and communicating transportation related knowledge.
