Feds seek guidance from Pittsburgh transit experts to shape national transportation innovation

Federal officials are looking to catalyze the nation’s transportation innovation efforts via the formation of a new advisory committee, and they’re relying on Pittsburgh’s prowess in this sector to help provide insights into a lot of this work.

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) launched the 27-member Transforming Transportation Advisory Committee (TTAC) with experts from academia, labor, industry and think tanks, among others. These members, to serve on two-year, unpaid appointments, will work together to inform DOT and other stakeholders about how to best address transit innovations relating to topics like accessibility, automation, cybersecurity and safety.
