The Security and Emergency Response Training Center (SERTC) is operated by the Transportation Technology Center, Inc. (TTCI), a subsidiary of the Association of American Railroads (AAR).
One way or another, we are all working to assure our security. Rail freight and passenger transportation systems are working around the clock to protect citizens, infrastructure, and services. Sabotage detection and prevention is now a critical arena for research and development.
Headquartered in Pueblo, Colorado, 21 miles northeast of Pueblo Airport, TTCI manages extensive track facilities, state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, and a highly talented engineering and support staff to make TTCI the obvious choice for meeting your research and testing needs. We encourage you to explore our web site, learn more about us, and contact us to discuss how we can work together.
TTCI manages the Federal Railroad Administration‘s (FRA) Transportation Technology Center (TTC), located just 21 miles northeast of Pueblo, Colorado. TTC is operated under a care, custody, and control contract with the FRA. This 52-square mile, secure and remote site operates with a vast array of specialized laboratories and track. TTC enables isolated testing for all categories of freight and passenger rolling stock, vehicle and track components, and safety devices.
There are 48 miles of railroad track available for testing locomotives, vehicles, track components, and signaling devices at the Transportation Technology Center (TTC), Pueblo, Colorado. Specialized tracks are used to evaluate vehicle stability, safety, endurance, reliability, and ride comfort. Using TTC’s tracks eliminates the interferences, delays, and safety issues encountered on an operating rail system.
