AgeLab Research Scientist and Advanced Vehicle Technology Consortium Director Bryan Reimer was appointed to the U.S. Department of Transportation's new Transforming Transportation Advisory Committee, which will advise the DOT and the Secretary of Transportation on plans and approaches to innovation in transportation. Advisory committee members were selected for their ability to provide diverse perspectives across sectors, geographies, and areas of expertise. The 27 TTAC members include experts from academia, think tanks, the public sector, labor, and industry covering topics including automation, cybersecurity, safety, accessibility, law, government, entrepreneurship, privacy, equity, and more.

“We are living in a time filled with unprecedented opportunity and unprecedented challenges in transportation,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “The deep expertise and diverse perspectives of this impressive group will provide advice to ensure the future of transportation is safe, efficient, sustainable, equitable, and transformative.”

TTAC members will serve 2-year terms and may be reappointed. DOT strived to select individuals with in-depth knowledge of their respective industries or sectors and worked to achieve the most diverse and comprehensive points of view.
