USA: Transportation agencies honored for new Web tool

Program lets firms plan Texas routes

The Intelligent Transportation Society of America has honored the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles and the Texas Department of Transportation with a Smart Solution Spotlight award for a new Web tool that allows motor carriers to self-issue the permits and routes they need to move oversize and overweight loads on the state’s highway system.

The award honors companies and organizations for using innovative technology — known as Intelligent Transportation Systems — to create a safer, cleaner, more efficient and sustainable transportation system.

The Texas Permitting and Routing Optimization System earned the award in recognition of its use of “smart” technology to improve service, save time and resources, and keep loads and motorists safe.

“This recognition is a testament to our commitment to customer service, safety and efficiency,” said TxDMV Executive Director Whitney Brewster.

“TxPROS is an innovative tool that promotes safety and efficiency for people moving goods through Texas,” said Phil Wilson, TxDOT executive director. “TxPROS reflects the strong partnership and collaborative effort between state government and the motor carrier industry that benefits all Texans.”
