Webinar: Impacts of Laws and Regulations on Automated and Connected Vehicle Introduction in Transit

Thursday, November 16, 2017
2:00 p.m.

Explore issues related to connected vehicle and automated vehicle use in public transportation during this 1.5-hour webinar featuring contributors to Impacts of Laws and Regulations on CV and AV Technology Introduction in Transit Operations, a recent report by the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP).

The webinar will discuss potential barriers imposed by operating policies, agency regulations, and laws related to the transit environment. Without adjustment, the combination of new technology with old rules could result in delays and restrictions to deployment, which may reduce the societal benefits of automated technologies. The report presents a road map of activities that industry groups, legislatures, the federal government and others could undertake to facilitate automated roadway transit operations.

This NCHRP webinar is offered through the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP). FTA sponsors TCRP to develop innovative solutions and adapt technologies and approaches to help meet the demands placed on the nation’s public transit systems.
