Building Capacity for Intelligent Transportation Systems in Rural and Small Metropolitan Areas

December 9, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm UTC-5

Date: Wednesday, December 9, 2020
Time: 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM ET
Cost: All T3 webinars are free of charge.

The National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) Research Foundation prepared a report on the implementation of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) technologies in rural areas for the U.S. Department of Transportation ITS Joint Program Office in early 2020. The research combined a review of literature on rural and small metropolitan ITS with interviews of transportation professionals. A series of case studies highlights the work of State, regional, local, and nonprofit agencies who are applying ITS in the areas of travel information; management and operations; bicycle, pedestrian, and traffic safety; public transit; and vehicle connectivity.

Target Audience

The target audience includes: regional development organizations (RDOs); regional transportation planning organizations (RTPOs); public transportation agencies; States, metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), city and county transportation professionals; and other agencies that support bicycle and pedestrian planning, public works, and safety.

Learning Objectives

Objectives of this webinar are that participants will gain an understanding about:

  • The role of local and regional agencies, including regional planning organizations, in ITS planning and projects.
  • ITS applications currently used in rural and small metropolitan settings related to highway, bicycle/pedestrian, transit, traveler information, and traffic safety.
  • How ITS applications have made a difference beyond metropolitan area boundaries and lessons learned from the transportation professionals who are implementing the projects.
