Complete Trip – ITS4US Deployment Program Concept of Operations Webinar 5: Complete Trip Deployment in Buffalo, NY
August 4, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
About this event
In early 2021, the U.S. Department of Transportation 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) to enable communities to showcase innovative business partnerships, technologies, and practices that promote independent mobility for all. The Program awarded $40 million to five sites to participate in Phase 1 of the program to plan and conceptualize their large-scale, replicable, real world deployments of integrated innovative technologies to address the challenges of planning and executing complete trips. For more details on the Complete Trip – ITS4US Deployment program, see the program’s website at: https://its.dot.gov/its4us/.
ITS JPO is hosting a set of five free, public webinars to allow each of the five deployment sites to publicly share their Concept of Operations (ConOps), which are being developed as part of Phase 1. This will be an opportunity for each site to discuss the main barriers to complete trips that their deployment aims to overcome, their deployment concept, and summarize their stakeholder engagement efforts conducted so far in Phase 1. At the end of the presentation, there will be an opportunity for the audience to ask the site questions about their project.
The proposed Buffalo, NY ITS4US deployment combines an accessible trip planning services with indoor/outdoor wayfinding, community-based shuttle services that include a self-driving fleet, and intersection pedestrian safety technologies targeted at providing complete trip support to travelers with disabilities in the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC) and its neighboring communities.
Live closed captioning will be provided for this webinar. When registering, please indicate if you need any additional disability accommodations to participate. The deadline to request additional disability accommodations for this webinar is July 28, 2021.
