Welcome to ITS Georgia.
I would like to thank the membership of ITS Georgia for electing me chapter president. I look forward to serving for the next two years, working with the Board of Directors and our member organizations to improve our chapter.
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.
With the recent approval of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, ITS Georgia will look for ways to help GDOT, local governments, transit agencies, CIDs and other agencies implement ITS solutions that address components of this legislation, including:
- Promote the deployment of transportation technologies and congestion management tools
- Encourage the installation of vehicle-to-infrastructure equipment to improve congestion and safety
- Update research and transportation standards development to reflect the growth of technology
As we work together to implement ITS solutions addressing congestion, mobility and safety, we hope to improve the quality of life for Georgia’s citizens. We look forward to a prosperous and successful 2016!
