Cleveland's Calabrese appointed to federal ITS advisory body

Written by 

U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood has appointed Joe Calabrese to a two-year term on the Intelligent Transportation Systems Program Advisory Committee. Since 2000, Calabrese has been CEO and general manager of the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority. He has more than 30 years experience in public transit.

ITS refers to advanced technology initiatives to improve information and communications systems in the transportation industry, to better manage customer service, customer information, safety and efficiencies.

"I know your service will enhance the value of the committee's role as a forum for national discussion and recommendations on ITS activities," LaHood wrote.

The committee, established by Congress, reviews areas on ITS research being pursued by the U.S. Department of Transportation, and provides advice on policy matters related to the ITS program.
