Congratulations to ITS Georgia members Georgia DOT and Serco for winning a Best of ITS award at the 2016 ITS America Mike-Holt-Head-Shot-2011-200px annual meeting for the Georgia NaviGator Comprehensive ITS Maintenance program. The system has been able to maintain the highest levels of operational availability of ITS through constant monitoring and preventative and responsive maintenance statewide, to reduce overall costs. It has made it possible to achieve 99.34% device availability on approximately 3,000 ITS devices on the system.

For more of the best is ITS, join us September 25 – 27 at beautiful Callaway Gardens for the 2016 ITS Georgia Annual Meeting and Expo. We’ll hear from leading transportation professionals and experts in ITS solutions and deployment. Our exhibitors will be displaying the latest in ITS technology.

ITS Georgia is committed to moving forward as an organization, working with ITS America and neighboring chapters to facilitate a better understanding of how ITS can improve safety and mobility. We will work to secure continued funding for ITS deployments through federal, state and local funding sources. We hope to grow our chapter in its membership, programs and outreach efforts to educate the public of the benefits of ITS.

Mike Holt
