ITS Professional Capacity Building (PCB)
ITS Professional Capacity Building is the US DOT’s primary vehicle for educating the current and emerging transportation workforce about ITS technologies. The PCB program connects ITS practitioners and decision makers with researchers, educators and trainers, and peers to advance the state of ITS practice.
The vision of the ITS PCB program is to develop an ITS profession that leads the world in the innovative use of ITS technologies. This vision is comprised of four core components: collaboration, innovative thinking, a customer-focused strategy, and a results-driven approach.
