DOT Webinar: Exploring Complete Trip Deployment Scenarios

March 26 / 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM EDT
03/26/20 5:00 PM 03/26/20 6:00 PM America/New_York DOT Webinar: Exploring Complete Trip Deployment Scenarios United States

The U.S. DOT launched the Complete Trip - ITS4US Deployment Program 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 led by the Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO) with support from the Office of the Secretary of Transportation (OST), Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

The Complete Trip - ITS4US Deployment Program will make up to $40 million available to enable communities to showcase innovative business partnerships, technologies, and practices that promote independent mobility for all. The program expects to procure and award multiple large-scale, replicable, real-world deployments of integrated innovative technologies to address the challenges of planning and executing complete trips.

The Complete Trip Concept

The success of a complete trip can be defined in terms of an individual’s ability to go from origin to destination without gaps in the travel chain.

A complete trip may include multiple links or trip segments such as: trip planning, outdoor navigation, intersection crossing, boarding/using vehicles, transferring between vehicles/modes/payment services, using stops/stations, indoor/outdoor transitions, indoor navigation and completing travel to destination. If one segment of the trip is inaccessible, unreliable or inefficient, then access to subsequent segments is broken, and the trip cannot be completed.

Webinar Details

The fifth webinar in the series will present two more hypothetical examples of communities applying the Complete Trip deployment concept development process, including identification of transportation challenges, partnership building, and concept development of integrated technology solutions.

Sofia Gallo (Special Assistant, Office of Transportation Policy) will provide a brief introduction to the Complete Trip – ITS4US Deployment Program. Elina Zlotchenko (Program Manager, ITS JPO) will give an overview of the program and upcoming procurement. Elina Zlotchenko and Kevin Adderly (Program Coordinator, FHWA Office of Planning, Environment, and Realty) will provide example deployment scenarios and integrated Complete Trip solutions for transportation challenges in two additional hypothetical communities. The materials for the first two deployment scenarios from Webinar #4 will be made available on the program website.

This webinar will conclude with information for potential deployers about the remainder of the webinar series.
