U.S. and India Collaborate on Urban Transportation

U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MOC) on Transportation with India’s Minister of Road Transport and Highways, and of Shipping, Nitin Gadkari. Minister Gadkari signed the MOC on behalf of the Indian Government, which will establish a Transportation Partnership among the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Indian Ministries of Railways; Road Transport and Highways; Shipping; and Urban Development.

The two sides focused on cooperation on the transportation elements of smart cities including efficient public transportation systems, Intelligent Transport Systems, Traffic Information and Control, multimodal integration and capacity building and training in the field of urban transportation. These elements will be coordinated through an inter-ministerial working group and include areas such as intelligent transportation systems, multi-modal planning, livability, safety, and infrastructure financing.

M. Venkaiah Naidu, Minister of Urban Development, reported that Task Forces have been constituted for the promotion of smart transportation in the Indian cities of Allahabad in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, Ajmer in the western state of Rajasthan, and Visakhapatnam in the eastern state of Andhra Pradesh in association with United States Trade Development Agency and the U.S. Department of Transportation.
