Q. Glossaries of Transportation Terms

Answer

The Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) Dictionary, which is the combined online version of Transportation Expressions and the Transportation Acronym Guide, lists official definitions of transportation-related terms: http://www.bts.gov/publications/transportation_expressions/

You may search by term or definition or browse alphabetically.

Many of these terms come from the Code of Federal Regulations, which you can access at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/browse/collectionCfr.action?collectionCode=CFR

For a list of selected transportation glossaries on the web, please see the attached file. 

Note that many of these are non-DOT and non-government sites.

You may also want to explore the Transportation Research Thesaurus, a hierarchical thesaurus of transportation terminology, from the Transportation Research Board and the National Transportation Library: http://ntlsearch.bts.gov/tris/trt.do
