The Transit Trophy is a trophy awarded to the winner of the annual college football game between the RPI Engineers and the WPI Engineers since 1980. After the 1979 contest it was decided by the athletic directors of both schools to create a trophy for this long-standing rivalry. A transit was chosen since both schools are engineering schools. RPI won the most recent Transit Trophy Game 27-6 on September 27, 2014. RPI leads the series 23-11-1.
