Randy Iwasaki, Executive Director of Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA), is the newest GRIDSMART Hall of Fame-er and we’re very excited to have him with us on our first special INTERSECT19 edition of POLICYSMART!
Everyone knows that Bay Area traffic is heavy—it’s a popular place to live, after all. The good thing is that the Bay Area also happens to be one of America’s most innovative places, if not THE most innovative. That being said, what is CCTA doing to innovate in transportation?
CCTA was recently awarded a $7.5 million grant from USDOT. They’re using it to work on three cool demos as a part of a four-year Automated Driving System (ADS) pilot program. Randy talks about these demos with us. Tune in to find out more about these AV, CAV, SAV (and more!) initiatives.

If you like our show, be sure to share it with your colleagues. You can also leave us a rating and a review. Those are helpful and much appreciated. If you have a question or comment, email us at marketing@gridsmart.com. POLICYSMART is a podcast production of GRIDSMART Technologies.
