Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) manages GoMentum Station, a 5,000–acre former naval weapons station, which features more than 20 miles of paved roadway, two 1400-foot tunnels, curbs, gutters, and sidewalks, railroad crossings, potholes, a smart signal lab, and a mini-city that can support multimodal testing. Founded by the CCTA and managed by AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah (AAA NCNU), this unique test bed provides an opportunity for test partners to push their technology to its limits while testing within a controlled environment.
GoMentum Station has previously been designated as one of 10 nationwide “Autonomous Vehicle Proving Grounds” by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT).
Positioning CCTA and its partner GoMentum Station as a premier model for autonomous vehicle research and development to federal stakeholders and other interested parties on a national level.
TG&A provides strategic advice and counsel to ensure CCTA/GoMentum is considered at the highest levels of U.S. transportation policy and funding decisions. This includes maintaining strong relationships to facilitate regular meetings with key policymakers in the U.S. Congress and federal agencies, like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). These relationships and strong lines of communication have led to significant federal investments and have allowed CCTA to substantially influence transportation policy on a national level.
