ITS Wisconsin advocates for technologies that improve the safety, efficiency, and mobility of Wisconsin’s surface transportation system. We work closely with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, industry partners, and university-based research and development in the promotion, planning, and deployment of advance transportation technologies. ITS deployments create jobs while promoting sustainable transportation and Wisconsin’s economic competitiveness.
The 2012 Wisconsin ITS Forum occurred on Tuesday, October 30, 2012 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Union South. 1308 W. Dayton St., Madison, WI 53715.
