Representatives across the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) modal agencies will attend this year's Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITS America) 2019 Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, from June 4 to 7. This year's theme is "Intelligent Mobility: Safer. Greener. Smarter," highlighting seamless mobility around the movement of people, data, and freight. The event is expected to gather over 2,500 attendees and offer more than 80 technical sessions, with U.S. DOT leaders featured in more than a dozen sessions.

At the U.S. DOT Plenary Session, attendees will hear firsthand from administrators and deputy administrators about their ITS research goals and programs. The session will be moderated by Diana Furchtgott-Roth, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Research and Technology, and include multimodal panelists such as K. Jane Williams, Federal Transit Administration Acting Administrator; Raymond Martinez, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Administrator; and Brandye Hendrickson, Federal Highway Administration Deputy Administrator.

In addition, the U.S. DOT is hosting an exhibit booth (#601 near the exhibit hall entrance) at the event. Representatives from several U.S. DOT agencies and key research programs will be on hand to share their insights and answer your questions. Along with highlighting several key initiatives--such as the Connected Vehicle Pilots, Data for Automated Vehicle Integration, and Cooperative Automation Research Mobility Applications--the booth will offer a hands-on virtual reality connected bicycle application; copies of Preparing for the Future of Transportation: Automated Vehicle 3.0; and fact sheets, brochures, and supporting materials for more information.

We hope to see you there.
