    Summary

    The purpose of the Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment (ATCMTD) 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.
    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; or
    • Advanced mobility and access technologies, such as dynamic ridesharing 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; or
    • 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 areas:
    • Multimodal Integrated Corridor Management (ICM)
    • Installation of connected vehicle technologies at intersections and pedestrian crossing locations
    • Unified fare collection and payment systems across transportation modes and jurisdictions
    • Freight Community System (sometimes called Port Community System) 
    • Technologies to support connected communities
    • Infrastructure Maintenance, Monitoring, and Condition Assessment
    • Rural technology deployments

    Additional Information

    The Department will prioritize projects that also enhance personal mobility and accessibility. Such projects include, but are not limited to, investments that better connect people to essential services such as employment centers, health care, schools and education facilities, healthy food, and recreation; remove physical barriers to access; strengthen communities through neighborhood redevelopment; mitigate the negative impacts of freight movement on communities; and support workforce development, particularly for disadvantaged groups, which include low-income groups, persons with visible and hidden disabilities, elderly individuals, and minority persons and populations. The Department may consider whether a projects design is likely to generate benefits for all users of the proposed project, including non-driving members of a community adjacent to or affected by the project.

  • Eligibility Details

    Eligible applicants are State or local governments, transit agencies, metropolitan planning organizations (MPO) representing a population of over 200,000, or other political subdivisions of a State or local government (such as publicly owned toll or port authorities), or a multijurisdictional group or consortia of research institutions or academic institutions. Partnership with the private sector or public agencies, including multimodal and multijurisdictional entities, research institutions, organizations representing transportation and technology leaders, or other transportation stakeholders is encouraged. Any application submitted by a sole research or academic institution and that is not part of a consortium will not be considered for selection.

    Deadline Details

    Applications were to be submitted by August 8, 2019. A similar deadline is anticipated annually.  

    Award Details

    Up to $60,000,000 is available in total funding for FY 2019. Awards may be up to $12,000.000. A total of 5 to 10 awards are anticipated. Cost sharing/matching of 50% of the total cost of the project is required. Project periods will span one to four years, starting in October 2019.
