NETT Council Activities

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) is committed to facilitating transportation innovation while prioritizing safety. The following are the latest public engagements from the NETT Council. 

Pathways to the Future of Transportation (July 2020)

Pathways to the Future of Transportation is intended to help readers understand the purposes of the Council and its methods of operation; the principles informing the Department policies in transformative technologies; the overarching regulatory framework for non-traditional and emerging transportation technologies; how the NETT Council will engage with innovators and entrepreneurs to enhance the Nation’s transportation system; and the next steps of the NETT Council. 

USDOT invites the public to comment on the Pathways document through the Request for Comment published in the Federal Register. The comment period will close on 9/28/20.  

Request for Comment (Nov 2019)

To ensure that the Council is responsive to the needs of our public and private sector stakeholders, the Department sought public comment on how the NETT Council can better be positioned to support transportation innovation, and the extent to which the Department’s existing regulatory construct supports or hinders innovation. The Department published this Request for Comment in the Federal Register on November 26, 2019 for 45 days (1/10/20).
