The Information Technology Committee serves as the focal point for the development and implementation of technology to enhance the effectiveness of transportation planning and operations, and to contribute to the changing public transportation industry and automation by providing information relative to successful practices, infrastructure support, and corporate cultures. The committee’s goal is to enhance productivity and efficiency in the transportation industry by promoting the coordination, development, and use of information technology, and as such, views technology as a key ingredient to the industry’s overall delivery infrastructure and must be seen in terms of its impact on the key business issues confronting transportation: cost containment and productivity; quality of service; system safety and passenger security; performance measurement; and management effectiveness. The committee sponsors TransITech, the industry’s computer exposition, and develops the “Software in Transit Resources Guide.”
