Indiana LTAP Fleet Educational Program Session: Transportation Innovation and Technology Transfer
Part 1: Innovation in Transportation — Building Better Mousetraps
Every transportation agency has someone with the can-do spirit. No problem is unsolvable, and they never say the word impossible. This is how we get things done, and keep roads and bridges safe for everyone. It’s inspiring to see how these doers solve difficult issues, and it’s time to recognize their achievements. In this session, discover programs at federal, state and local levels that celebrate these innovative solutions
and share them with other agencies facing the same challenges. Innovations range from tool and equipment modifications to implementation of new processes that increase safety, reduce cost, and improve transportation system efficiency.
Part 2: What Fuels Public Works — The Innovators in Alternative Fuels (10:30–11:20 a.m.)
The need to provide goods and services at a reduced cost is a challenge shared by public and private fleets. The cost of fuel, fleet dependability, and demand for services drive our fleet managers to find ways to meet needs within tight budgets. Alternative fuels can help meet this challenge. During this panel discussion, hear from municipal managers who have taken bold steps toward cleaner, safer and more dependable fuels for their fleet and community.
