The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Releases a New Fact Sheet on Planning for the Future of Connected Vehicles and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)

The USDOT has developed a new fact sheet to encourage planning agencies to consider how their local transportation systems will function in a connected vehicle environment. The Planning for the Future of Transportation: Connected Vehicles and ITS fact sheet provides a quick overview of the ITS Joint Program Office’s connected vehicle research activities and highlights key elements of performance-based planning and programming (PBPP) that present opportunities for addressing this connected vehicle environment.
These PBPP elements include:

  • Strategic Direction (Where do we want to go?)
  • Planning Analysis (How are we going to get there?)
  • Programming (What will it take?)
  • Implementation and Evaluation (How did we do?)

The fact sheet also provides information on available planning tools and connected vehicle and ITS resources.
