Advancing the research and deployment of ITS to improve mobility and increase efficiency and productivity

ITS America Equity Policy

Today’s transportation systems suffer from historic and ongoing inequities embedded in infrastructure, access, and cost. As we explore and fulfill the promise of new technologies, we must embrace and support the paradigm shift occurring in our nation, learn from the lessons of the past, and incorporate transportation equity principles into policy, research, and implementation strategies. This must include explicit consideration of technology’s effects on those least prepared to use it or who face particular barriers to adoption to ensure their safety, access, and mobility are not compromised.
