Transforming Transportation in Tampa

In Tampa, Florida, connected-vehicle technologies may help to revolutionize transportation in the multimodal downtown area while mitigating issues such as traffic congestion and delays, vehicle crashes, pedestrian safety, and transit conflicts. In 2015, the U.S. Department of Transportation selected the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) in Tampa as one of three pilot sites—along with sites in New York City and Wyoming—for deployment of CV technology. The goals of the CV Pilot Deployment Program are to determine what barriers exist and how to address them, document lessons learned, and serve as a template to assist other early technology deployments. This article describes the pilot program and its challenges, successes, and next steps.
