Eno is a non-profit charitable foundation, recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3). The Eno Center for Transportation (Eno) was founded in 1921 by William Phelps Eno (1859-1945), who pioneered the field of traffic management in the United States and Europe. Mr. Eno sought to promote safe mobility by ensuring that traffic control became an accepted role of government and traffic engineering became a recognized professional discipline.

The leader in its field for over a century, Eno provides government and industry leaders with timely research and an independent voice on policy issues. Eno publishes rigorous, objective analyses on the problems facing transportation and provides ideas for, and a clear path toward possible solutions. In addition, for nearly two decades, Eno Transportation Weekly (ETW) has been the premier federal transportation policy publication for transportation leaders across the country. 

Through its professional development programs, Eno cultivates creative and visionary leadership by giving public and private transportation leaders the tools and training they need to succeed together. Since its inception, Eno has instructed over 3,500 transportation professionals. Eno can look back on a long and proud history as a thought-leader in national transportation policy with a strong training and leadership program. 

Eno enjoys a truly unique position as the hub of a network of transportation industry leaders with a smart and dedicated staff and a solid reputation for credible, independent, and impactful work.
