Committee made up of subject matter experts and industry leaders will provide advice to USDOT on how to expand innovation across the nation’s transportation network.
Last week, the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) launched the Transforming Transportation Advisory Committee. This new group, made up of 27 members, is tasked with providing advice to USDOT and the Secretary of Transportation on how to better increase the use of innovation in the transportation industry. Committee members are appointed to 2-year terms and include industry leaders from both the public and private sector. The first meeting will take place on January 18th.
“We are living in a time filled with unprecedented opportunity and unprecedented challenges in transportation,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “The deep expertise and diverse perspectives of this impressive group will provide advice to ensure the future of transportation is safe, efficient, sustainable, equitable, and transformative.”
