This session will include perspectives from the state, regional and local level on planning for automated and connected vehicles.


Automated Vehicle (AV) technologies are rapidly advancing and present significant opportunities, as well as challenges, to personal, commercial and public transportation networks. The Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) is initiating a planning process to develop a strategic framework to assist the region in setting goals and advancing strategies to support the successful deployment of new transportation technologies.


This process is intended to provide recommendations for the region’s metropolitan transportation plan, best practices for future infrastructure improvements, and guidance for data management strategies and other policy and legislative priorities. Additional deliverables may be determined with input from process stakeholders.
