Information and Communication Technology

The Information and Communication Technology work of the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) strives to inform and encourage participating states to adopt new technologies that will make transportation more energy efficient and sustainable.  

The work seeks to advance emerging technologies to:

  • Promote transit use through information technologies
  • Encourage travelers to use real-time information offered in 511 and other systems to reduce their travel times
  • Improve bus scheduling and routing
  • Reduce travel times and traffic congestion
  • Reduce idling and unproductive run times for trucks and other heavy-duty vehicles
  • Introduce new ways of collecting and disseminating travel data
  • Reduce the cost of vehicle ownership
  • Improve public safety
  • Expand consumer travel choices
