Smart Cities technologies can help create a system that is safe, comfortable and convenient for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders & automobile drivers.
Existing & cutting-edge technologies like navigation apps, real-time traffic management, smart street lights & many others can solve real-world problems by providing information to travelers, improving communication among road users, planning trips, and facilitating payments.
The purpose of Hillsborough TPO’s forthcoming Smart Cities Mobility Plan is to identify & understand these technologies so they can be used to solve the problems facing our residents. This plan is an update to the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Master Plan which was last updated in 2013.

Staff presented to 16 classes at Tampa Bay Tech, sharing information on Smart City Technologies and how they can improve quality of life for residents and commuters. Students also shared their feedback via a survey on their preference and concerns about the various technologies currently used.
