The U.S. Department of Transportationís Transforming Transportation Advisory Committee Seeks Members

The U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) recently created the Transforming Transportation Advisory Committee (TTAC). The committee was established to advise the Secretary on how innovative technologies can transform transportation in a manner that prioritizes safety and security, equity, climate goals, accessibility, economic competitiveness, and opportunities for our workforce. The TTAC may consider and provide recommendations to the Secretary on a range of topics, including (but not limited to):

  • Integrated approaches and finding ways to promote greater cross-modal integration of emerging technologies, in particular applications to deploy automation.
  • Policies that encourage innovation to grow and support a safe and productive U.S. workforce, as well as foster economic competitiveness and job quality.
  • Approaches and frameworks that encourage the secure exchange and sharing of transformative transportation data, including technologies and infrastructure, across the public and private sectors that can guide core policy decisions across DOT's strategic goals.
  • Exploring ways the Department can identify and elevate cybersecurity solutions and protect privacy across transportation systems and infrastructure.
