Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) Senior Research Engineer Ginger Goodin was recently appointed to the Intelligent Transportation Systems Program Advisory Committee (ITS PAC). Goodin was invited to join the committee by U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.
The role of the ITS PAC is to act in an advisory capacity to the Secretary of Transportation on matters relating to the study, development and implementation of ITS.
“I think it’s a great opportunity to work with an impressive group of individuals from a diverse range of organizations,” said Goodin, who is also the director of TTI’s Transportation Policy Research Center. “It is an exciting time to be working in the ITS field. The fact that we are doing more work in the technology policy area is one way in which I can contribute to this committee. The Policy Research Center supports state and local policy for various types of ITS applications such as those involving vehicle technologies, transportation systems management and data sharing. My hope is that we can positively add to the ITS strategy discussion at the federal level.”
Goodin’s term begins immediately and lasts two years.
