Connected Transportation: A Digital Infrastructure for the Public Sector

Connected and digital transportation offers a way to improve the efficiency, safety and livability of communities in a time when government is dealing with highway fatalities, increasing congestion, trends like autonomous vehicles and rising citizen expectations. And that’s why, now more than ever, it is time for the public sector to invest in an infrastructure that digitizes transportation and increases the health, happiness and success of communities.

To discuss why it’s time for transportation to evolve to the digital realm, GovLoop partnered with Cisco, a leader in digital infrastructure, for this industry perspective. In the following pages, we’ll discuss a vision for connected and digital transportation, discuss current trends and challenges in transportation and how to overcome them and gain insights from Cisco experts Michelle Maggiore, PE, Cisco Smart+Connected Communities, Transportation Consultant, and Barry Einsig, Global Transportation Executive.
