Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment Initiative

see PIVOT notice — $12,000,000

Abstract
The DOT hereby requests applications to result in awards to eligible entities to develop model deployment sites for large scale installation and operation of advanced transportation technologies to improve safety,efficiency, system performance, and infrastructure return on investment. These model deployments are expected to provide benefits in the form of:
– reduced traffic-related fatalities and injuries;
-reduced traffic congestion and improved travel time reliability;
– reduced transportation-related emissions;
– optimized multimodal system performance;
– improved access to transportation alternatives, including for underserved populations;
– public access to real time integrated traffic, transit, and multimodal transportation information to make informed travel decisions;
– cost savings to transportation agencies, businesses, and the traveling public; or
– other benefits to transportation users and the general public.

This competitive advanced transportation and congestion management technologies deployment grant program will promote the use of innovative transportation solutions. The deployment of these technologies will provide Congress and DOT with valuable real life data and feedback to inform future decision making.

The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) will host an Informational Session regarding this Funding Opportunity focused on the Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment Initiative. This session will be conducted as a virtual forum and will focus on specific topics to help potential applicants gather additional information and ask specific questions.

Participation in this session is not mandatory in order to submit an application under this solicitation. Potential applicants are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to gather information regarding this specific funding opportunity.
