The State Smart Transportation Initiative promotes transportation practices that advance environmental sustainability and equitable economic development, while maintaining high standards of governmental efficiency and transparency.
As a joint project of the University of Wisconsin and Smart Growth America, we operate mainly in three ways:
- We operate a peer network for leaders of state departments of transportation who meet regularly at our Community of Practice meetings.
- We lead research and technical assistance that informs transformative and replicable transportation reform efforts across the U.S.
- We share knowledge and best practices with the wider transportation community, including federal, state, and local agencies, community groups, and policy organizations.
SSTI’s participating state agencies differ in many respects but share a commitment to rethinking policies and processes to produce better transportation outcomes.
