ITS America MOU with AASHTO and ITE initiates a National Center of Excellence for Operations

from ITS America

This past Friday, Scott Belcher, President and CEO of ITS America joined Bud Wright, the Executive Director of AASHTO and Tom Brahms, President of ITE, to sign a Memorandum of Understanding among the three organizations to work together to create a National Center of Excellence for Operations to support effective transportation system management and operations throughout the country.

The Center will help provide leadership in support of the operations community, promote knowledge development and transfer, identify research needs and best practices and guidance, organize workshops and training, and facilitate peer to peer relationships and community forums.

This is a great opportunity for the transportation community, comprised as it is of public agencies, research institutions, and private companies, to come together in support of smart transportation solutions for highway operations. ITS America appreciates the Federal Highway Administration for spearheading this initiative and look forward to partnering with our colleague associations to offer a cross-cutting perspective that will further the deployment of technologies to address highway system congestion, safety and reliability. more
