ITS America, the nation's leading advocate for technologies that improve the safety, security and efficiency of the nation's surface transportation system, today presented the MassDOT Developers Initiative with an ITS America Smart Solution Spotlight award. The award recognizes MassDOT for its public-private collaboration that has significantly expanded the distribution of transportation information to the general public – at minimal cost to Massachusetts taxpayers.
Since July 2009, the MassDOT Developers Initiative has led to the development of tens of thousands of dollars worth of website and mobile customer information applications that help Massachusetts travelers navigate the MBTA, RTAs, and Massachusetts roads.
ITS America recognized the MassDOT Developers model because of its low cost, which allows the strategy to be replicated by transportation agencies or other government bureaucracies around the nation. By acting as wholesalers rather than retailers of transportation information, these agencies can more effectively and efficiently deliver information to customers, encourage private investment and economic growth and spur new innovations.
As the leading voice for the use of smart technology to address our nation’s transportation challenges, the ITS America Smart Solution Spotlight award highlights the best and most innovative use of intelligent transportation systems to address national and regional transportation challenges.
