They classified Scotty's transwarp formula, and watching this movie makes it clear why Starfleet wouldn't deploy it as a means of space travel or exploration any time soon. As Admiral Kirk said of the Genesis Device in TWOK, it's a bag that could rearrange the whole Galaxy, and best that as few people as possible even know it exists.
This. I was thinking about it in terms of cloaking technology as well. The Federation (specifically Starfleet) obviously has the means to recreate cloaking technology but does not use it (with exception) because they are not the type of organization to be known for sneaking around and dealing in the dark. Transwarp technology obviously has its advantages but with the events that took place with the torpedos in the film, I think it's clear it would do more harm than good at this point.
