Fast Forward was developed for middle, high school, and community college students and faculty to enhance awareness of careers and other important issues surrounding the transportation industry. Fast Forward introduces material relating to transportation industry leaders and professionals, programs, projects, and careers. It presents an opportunity for the transportation industry to reach out to students and faculty across the U.S. to enhance public understanding of the challenges and solutions surrounding transportation today. In doing so, it addresses the need to build and sustain an efficient and effective workforce of knowledgeable transportation professionals. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Nebraska Transportation Center, has been awarded the contract to create Fast Forward by the US DOT Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
