The Committee, which was created by Congress in 2007, met six times in its 2010-2011 session. In addition to its regularly scheduled meetings at the U.S. DOT in Washington, D.C., notable meetings were held at the Metropolitan Transportation Commission in Oakland, CA, and in Ann Arbor, MI. The goal of the meetings were to expose the Committee to more in-depth information on ITS activities and progress in transit operations (Oakland) and the private sector automobile manufacturer industry (Ann Arbor). These meetings were held in January and March of 2011, respectively.
