Public Comment Period for USDOT Technology Council Ends Jan. 10

The public has until Jan. 10 to offer feedback to the U.S. Department of Transportation regarding its Non-Traditional and Emerging Transportation Technology Council.

The department is asking the public to focus its input on matters related to performance requirements, innovation, federal rulemaking, cross-sector or cross-modal transportation safety regulations and technical support.

As USDOT explained, “The Non-Traditional and Emerging Transportation Technology Council was formed to provide project sponsors a single point of access to the department to discuss innovative transportation plans and proposals, to coordinate oversight of such projects, and to develop and establish departmentwide processes, solutions and best practices for managing new transportation technology subject to the department’s jurisdiction.”
