Texas Transportation Institute Director Dennis Christiansen was elected to a three-year term on the Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITS America) board and joined the board at the organization’s June board meeting. He will also serve on the ITS America Policy and Business Council, which focuses on transportation policy, business leadership, and government and international affairs.
“I am honored to be selected as a board member of ITS America, one of the nation’s primary thought leaders in emerging intelligent transportation system [ITS] technologies,” Christiansen says. “I am looking forward to being involved in moving these new technologies forward to improve our nation’s transportation system.”
ITS America was established in 1991 as a not-for-profit organization to foster the use of advanced technologies in surface transportation systems. The organization’s members include private corporations, public agencies and academic institutions involved in the research, development and design of ITS technologies to enhance safety, increase mobility and sustain the environment.
