DOT Seeks Industry Feedback to Bolster Emerging Transportation Tech Council

The Department of Transportation is requesting public input on how to bolster the capabilities of a newly-formed council tasked with supporting emerging transportation technologies.

DOT said Tuesday it released a request for comments to gather suggestions on topics, projects or issues the Non-Traditional and Emerging Transportation Council should consider to better respond to the growing needs of the public and industry. 

NETT Council was formed in March to provide companies a single access point to talk to DOT about their plans and proposals, develop a streamlined process for securing approval and funding and coordinate oversight of transportation projects.

Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao said the council is also developed to "provide a common portal to the department’s decentralized modes to better engage with new technologies which are cross-modal."

Responses to the RFC are due Jan. 10, 2020.
