The activities of the Foundation are overseen by a board of six trustees.
Joe Greenwell, who is chairman of the Foundation, is also chairman of the trustee board.
Additionally, Joe chairs the Foundation's Public Policy Committee. This advisory body usually consists of 14 members, including the trustees, predominantly drawn from the worlds of academia, politics and business, all with experience of, or an interest in, transport matters. The committee is consulted about research, strategy, major campaigns and future policy.
The Foundation's day to day running is managed by the director, Professor Stephen Glaister, with the help of the permanent staff.
