ITS4US Program Overview
The ITS4US Deployment Program, led by the ITS JPO at the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT), expands access to transportation for all travelers with a specific focus on underserved communities, including people with disabilities, older adults, veterans, individuals of low income, people in rural communities, and those with limited English proficiency. This program embodies the Administration’s priorities of transportation equity, economic growth, sustainability, and most importantly, compassion and inclusivity. The program funds multiple large-scale replicable deployments in three phases:
- Phase 1: concept development
- Phase 2: design and testing
- Phase 3: operations and evaluation
In June 2022, the deployment sites completed the concept development phase of each of their projects. The U.S. DOT awarded four teams with Phase 2 funding to support the design and testing of their projects based on their Phase 1 concepts. The four deployment sites are:
- Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT)
- Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA)/Buffalo
- University of Washington (UW)
