FIXING AMERICA’S SURFACE TRANSPORTATION (FAST) ACT REAUTHORIZATION: Platform and RecommendationsMoving People, Data, and Freight: Safer, Greener, Smarter.
“Over the years since the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act was signed into law, automated and connected vehicle technologies have advanced, the collection and use of big data has become an increasingly valuable tool for decision makers, electrification of vehicles of every type from human scale to large-scale continues, and Mobility on Demand services are transforming how we get around. These technologies allow additional freedom of movement for those who have limited mobility access, such as people with disabilities, older adults, and those living in transit deserts. Technology advancements will also help begin to reduce the epidemic of fatalities on our roadways.
For these reasons, ITS America supports a FAST Act reauthorization that recognizes the added value of integrating technology into transportation infrastructure and services and provides funding for the rapid deployment of intelligent transportation.”
