The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is the regional planning and intergovernmental coordination agency that focuses on issues critical to the region’s success, including growth and development, transportation, water resources, services for older adults and workforce solutions. ARC is dedicated to unifying the region’s collective resources to prepare the metropolitan area for a prosperous future. This is done through professional planning initiatives, the provision of objective information, and the involvement of the community in collaborative partnerships.
Recognizing that technology has far-reaching impacts on the way we implement today and plan for tomorrow, the ARC has begun developing a technology program to help the region adapt to this quickly changing world. Since the development of the Regional Transit Data Warehouse to aid regional transit providers in developing open, standardized schedule data, the program has rapidly grown to house trip planning, real-time transit arrivals, and other passenger information applications. ARC anticipates that this program will continue to grow and become more central to the agency’s programs and the Atlanta region’s needs. The program will expand to encompass traditional Intelligent Transportations Systems (ITS), intelligent/automated vehicles, traveler information systems, internal and external transportation technology consulting, open transportation data, relationship management with regional technology stakeholders including the private sector.
ARC is seeking to hire a Transportation Technology Administrator to further this vision. This individual will be charged with picking up the various aspects of ARC’s transportation technology work and shaping them into a cohesive whole and a programmatic approach. It is essential that this individual understand urban/suburban issues and the future of the transportation landscape. It is highly desirable that the successful candidate have some basic knowledge of information technology, software application development and management, familiarity working in data management and visualization software, and project management and a willingness to learn more. The combination of these skill sets, and knowledge bases will be critical to the success of the transportation technology program.
