Public fleets often serve as a change model for private fleets and the general public when they incorporate new technologies, such as connected vehicles. Connected vehicles can communicate wirelessly with traffic signals, taxis, work zones, trucks, and even pedestrians. Learn about the USDOT’s projects with two different government fleets (New York City and Wyoming) to create real-world environments that will test this technology, and actions you can take today to ensure your agencies are prepared for the fleets of tomorrow.
