    *Note: ATTIMD was formerly known as the Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment Program (ATCMTD).

    The purpose of the Advanced Transportation Technologies and Innovative Mobility Deployment (ATTIMD) initiative is to make competitive grants for the development of model deployment sites for large scale installation and operation of advanced transportation technologies to improve safety, efficiency, system performance, and infrastructure return on investments. The DOT intends for these model technology deployments to help demonstrate how emerging transportation technologies, data, and their applications can be effectively deployed and integrated with existing systems to provide access to essential services and other destinations. This also includes efforts to increase connectivity to employment, education, services and other opportunities; support workforce development; or contribute to increased mobility, particularly for persons with visible and hidden disabilities and elderly individuals.

    Applicants may use funds under this program to deploy advanced transportation technologies, including:

    • Advanced traveler information systems
    • Advanced transportation management technologies
    • Infrastructure maintenance, monitoring, and condition assessment
    • Advanced public transportation systems
    • Transportation system performance data collection, analysis, and dissemination systems
    • Advanced safety systems, including vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications
    • Technologies associated with autonomous vehicles, and other collision avoidance technologies, including systems using cellular technology
    • Integration of intelligent transportation systems with the Smart Grid and other distribution systems
    • Electronic pricing and payment systems
    • Advanced mobility and access technologies, such as dynamic ride sharing and information systems to support human services for elderly and disabled individuals

    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
    • Other benefits to transportation users and the general public

    Although proposals are not limited to DOT priorities, the DOT is particularly interested in deployment programs and projects in the following focus areas:

    • Climate Change and Environmental Justice Impacts
    • Racial Equity and Barriers to Opportunity
    • Integration of intelligent transportation systems with the Smart Grid and other energy distribution and charging systems
    • Advanced public transportation systems
    • Freight Community System
    • Rural Opportunities to Use Transportation for Economic Success (R.O.U.T.E.S.) Initiative
    • Complete Trip

    Additional Information

    Goals for the ATTTIMD Initiative include:

    • Reduced costs and improved return on investments, including through the enhanced use of existing transportation capacity
    • Delivery of environmental benefits that alleviate congestion, reduce transportation-related emissions and streamline traffic flow
    • Measurement and improvement of the operational performance of the applicable transportation networks
    • Reduction in the number and severity of traffic crashes and an increase in driver, passenger, and pedestrian safety
    • Collection, dissemination, and use of real time transportation related information to improve mobility, reduce congestion, and provide for more efficient and accessible transportation, including access to safe, reliable, and affordable connections to employment, education, healthcare, freight facilities, and other services
    • Monitoring transportation assets to improve infrastructure management, reduce maintenance costs, prioritize investment decisions, and ensure a state of good repair
    • Delivery of economic benefits by reducing delays, improving system performance and throughput, and providing for the efficient and reliable movement of people, goods, and services
    • Accelerated deployment of V2V, V2I, and technologies associated with automated vehicles and other advanced technologies
    • Integration of advanced technologies into transportation system management and operations
    • Demonstration, quantification, and evaluation of the impact of these advanced technologies, strategies, and applications towards improved safety, efficiency, equity, and sustainable movement of people and goods
    • Reproducibility of successful systems and services for technology and knowledge transfer to other locations facing similar challenges
