The State Smart Transportation Initiative (SSTI) promotes transportation practices that advance environmental sustainability and equitable economic development, while maintaining high standards of governmental efficiency and transparency. SSTI, jointly operated by the University of Wisconsin/COWS and Smart Growth America, operates in three ways:
-As a community of practice, where participating agencies can learn together and share experiences as they implement innovative smart transportation policies. -As a source of direct technical assistance to the agencies on transformative and replicable smart transportation reform efforts. -As a resource to the wider transportation community, including local, state, and federal agencies, in their efforts to reorient practice to changing social and financial demands.
SSTI employs several staff members as policy analysts/outreach specialists. These staff members, report to SSTI's director.
SSTI is currently undertaking a variety of projects that involve research and technical assistance to help modernize policy and practice at state DOTs and other transportation agencies. Successful applicants will be expected to contribute to the success of these initiatives, employing tools such as GIS and statistical analysis
