ITS PCB Peer Exchange
The ITS PCB Peer Exchange Program provides short-term technical assistance to agencies facing ITS planning, procurement, deployment, and operational challenges. An ITS PCB Peer Exchange is an important tool for transferring ITS knowledge, resources, and experiences among public agencies and throughout the transportation industry.
Contact ITS PCB Peer Exchange Program staff at ITSPCB@dot.gov. To learn more before you call, refer to the ITS PCB Peer Exchange Guidelines.
The ITS PCB Peer Exchange Program tries to cover all costs associated with the assistance efforts, within limits of the guidelines. The ITS Peer Exchange Program will pay for travel, accommodations, meals, incidental expenses, and similar costs associated with on-site and off-site assistance.
Peers and the program’s national office staff are required to hold all information confidential within the program. Public release of information (for example for a newsletter synopsis) is approved in advance by the agencies and Peers involved.
Over 120 ITS peer experts lend their technical expertise to the ITS PCB Peer Exchange Program. Most experts are public sector transportation professionals who are active in the planning, design, procurement, and implementation of ITS.
