Vukan's research interests are in the area of transportation systems, especially with regard to urban transportation. In his research, he examines: urban transportation systems technology, operations, planning and economics; the definitions of transportation systems components and their modeling; and the interrelationship of cities and transportation with respect to urban planning, livability and sustainability. He has questioned the role of Maglev technology for high-speed ground transportation (HSGT) and further challenged the USDOT selection of demonstration projects.
