Developing Trends Report

The Developing Trends Report is a collaborative effort of the ITE councils and committees to bring diverse, broad, and deep dialogue among professionals about the role of advanced technologies in transportation planning, engineering, management, and operation.

Developing Trends is an attempt to addresses the question of “What will be relevant to practitioners within the next two years?” This report was made possible through great volunteer work of all councils and committees who identified statements about what topics are important to ITE members.
