GoMentum Station in Concord, California is where the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) leads and facilitates a collaborative partnership among multiple AMs; OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers; communications suppliers; technology companies; researchers and academia; public agencies and other partners. These entities converge in research development, testing validation and commercialization of Connected Vehicle (CV) applications and Autonomous Vehicles (AV) technologies to define the next generation of transportation network infrastructure. The 5,000–acre former navy weapons station, featuring 20 miles of paved roadway, is the largest secure test facility in the world and will become the center of CV/AV research.
As a transportation leader, CCTA is working to create a stronger economic future for Contra Costa County by building partnerships that make transportation safer, more reliable and increasingly efficient. Rather than exclusively trying to “build our way” out of congestion, CCTA’s vision centers around the use of emerging technologies and public-private partnerships to meet transportation demands and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Contra Costa County.
Our strategy is centered on:
- Creating jobs to increase the region’s economic competitiveness
- Partnering with our communities to improve safety, mobility and the environment
- Creating a world-class CV/AV test bed with active industry and government participation
