Strategic Plan

In 2011, the ITS PCB Program released a strategic plan that lays out the future direction of the USDOT’s ITS training and education. ITS Professional Capacity Building (PCB): Setting Strategic Direction 2010-2014 describes an ITS PCB Program that leverages its partners’ knowledge assets in order to broaden the scope and reach of training, that explores and implements new web-based and social-media technologies for delivering training, and that makes use of its extensive outreach network to familiarize the ITS community with emerging technologies, thus helping to accelerate the adoption of the technologies among surface-transportation agencies.
