State DOTs are faced with accelerating rates of technology-related changes that impact how people move from point A to point B, how transportation systems are operated and managed and how information is collected, stored and used. These changes directly impact infrastructure, provision and pricing of transportation services and communications networks.

Capability building is not one and done. It is a process of ongoing transformation as new change forces create new challenges and opportunities. By building essential capabilities to adjust and adapt to technology and other accelerating change forces, transportation agencies can meet transportation needs today while improving their resilience and agility to respond more easily to future change forces they cannot even foresee.
