What regional or local needs should we consider?
We want to hear from you! Below is information about trends in technology, an informative video, and resources to pique your understanding about why technology matters in planning the future of transportation. We invite you to share your thoughts and ideas on technology and how it will change transportation in the future using the red button below.
Why Technology Matters
Technology is constantly evolving and changing the way people interact with one another, work, do business, travel, and even how they buy groceries. New and emerging technologies offer the potential for a safer, more efficient transportation system; more connectivity globally and locally; and streamlined business practices. However, increased reliance on technology brings other challenges to the forefront like cybersecurity and data privacy. Transportation partners need to make wise decisions today to prepare for this future.
