Atlanta was chosen as the location for ITS World Congress 2025 because it is renowned as a world hub of transportation, showcasing some of the most cutting-edge technology within the Atlanta metro region and throughout the state of Georgia. From the Hartsfield-Jackson International, the world’s busiest airport, seeing about 286,000 passengers per day, the city investing more than $168 billion in transportation funding into creating safer roads and highways, expanding public transportation access and new projects to support active mobility for pedestrians and biking accessibility, there is much to learn from the host city. 

In addition to the city of Atlanta itself, the Georgia Department of Transportation is a leader in advancing safety and sustainability in transportation.  Georgia DOT has deployed the largest network of V2X technologies in the U.S., covering 1,200 signalized intersections and is expanding investments across their interstate system. The city of Peachtree Corners, GA is a living laboratory to test emerging technologies through their Curiosity Lab, a 500-acre technology park with a three-mile roadway showcasing autonomous vehicles, 5G cellular vehicle-to-everything technology, smart streetlights and signals, among other technologies. 
“We are looking forward to convening in Atlanta next August and showcasing a region leading in deploying technology to proactively address how we can deliver safer, greener, smarter mobility for all. Attendees will be able to experience numerous tours and demos that will show the best our industry has to offer,” said Jaime McAuley, ITS America Events event director at RX.
