The Intelligent Transportation Systems Cooperative Deployment Network is a free, shared Internet site, containing up-to-date news and resources for transportation professionals from state, local, and private agencies. Through this Web site, users have access to:

  • The ICDN Newsletter containing late-breaking news and insight related to ITS deployment topics. Features a powerful search engine and the ability to subscribe online to receive the free monthly e-mail version of the newsletter.
  • The ICDN Shared Calendars  listing important ITS conferences, workshops, and training opportunities offered by all ICDN members
  • The ICDN Discussion Forums linking users to online bulletin boards where those involved in ITS deployment or operations can post issues, request assistance, or respond to issues/requests posted by their peers.

The Web site and services are created and provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Associations Working Group for ITS (NAWGITS), a cooperative effort of organizations whose members are spearheading ITS deployment in the United States. ICMA is an active member of NAWGITS.
