About this event

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) has launched the Complete Trip - ITS4US Deployment Program that aims to solve mobility challenges of all travelers, regardless of location, income, or disability, in accessing jobs, education, healthcare, and other activities.

This Program is a multimodal, multi-year, effort let by the Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO) with support from Office of the Secretary of Transportation (OST), Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) that will make up to $40 million available to enable communities to showcase innovative business partnerships, technologies, and practices that promote independent mobility for all. The Program expects to procure and award multiple large scale, replicable, real world deployments of integrated innovative technologies to address the challenges of planning and executing complete trips.
