Make plans to join ITS America, the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority and ITS Georgia for the Complete Streets Symposium -- happening Nov. 17 and 18 in Atlanta, Georgia.  This two-day event will focus on how safety, redevelopment, urban freight movement and ITS technologies enhance a complete streets network and the transportation experience as a whole. The symposium program features four panel discussions featuring industry and government thought leaders, a table-top exhibition of transportation technologies, and a networking reception. A special highlight includes the opportunity for attendees to take part in a guided tour of the AT&T Drive Studio facility, a working lab where AT&T showcases best in-class connected vehicle solutions. Registration is now open and there are specific rates for both the private and public sector. Updates to the symposium program are being made daily. For a complete schedule, please visit
