The U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) has posted the DRAFT Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the Complete Trip – ITS4US Deployment funding opportunity.
The U.S. DOT launched the Complete Trip – ITS4US Deployment Program to solve the mobility challenges of all travelers, regardless of location, income, or disability, in accessing jobs, education, healthcare, and other activities. This is a multimodal, multi-year, effort led by the Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO) with support from the Office of the Secretary of Transportation (OST), Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The program is making up to $40 million available to enable communities to showcase innovative business partnerships, technologies, and practices that promote independent mobility for all. The program expects to award multiple large-scale, replicable, real-world deployments of integrated innovative technologies to address the challenges of planning and executing complete trips.
The DRAFT BAA for Phase 1 of the deployment is now available for public comment. The comment period closes on May 29, 2020. Questions and comments received will be used to inform the final BAA.
