Publish SCACs as they become available

As I understand it, freight carriers apply for Standard Carrier Alpha Codes (SCACs) through the National Motor Freight Traffic Association. Once they are granted, they are passed to the DOT.

 

The DOT should make available all of the presently registered SCACs, and provide updates at a reasonable frequency (bi-weekly or monthly).

Campaign: Your comments on our Open Government Plan

CSA

I agree with the concept and structure that the CSA program model is based on except for one Basic catagory. I feel that the Cargo Securement Basic does not adequately represent carriers of similar size and number of inspections. Deck carriers and Vanbody carriers although still subject the security of load regulations they do differ in a great way. I feel that carriers should be compaired by comodity and not by size ...more »

Real-time traffic data with Socrata, Tropo and Twitter (Video)

A digital transportation exchange needs real-time information to flow from people and machines who produce data, to other people and machines who need to use it. This flow of data needs to be intelligent and frictionless. This is why, conceptually, we think of DTE as a collection of these key elements - Cloud data. With so many disparate participants, the only possible common fabric is the cloud - Open Platforms, not ...more »

Credentials

The U.S. government needs to provide each citizen the opportunity to create a government sponsored digital avatar. This avatar can be updated with information regarding the individual's credentials. I have a degree in engineering, and I have 3 years of experience writing software. But you don't know if I am being honest. You don't know how to separate my input on information technologies from the input of rambling ...more »

A single lane can transit over 15,000 vehicles per hour 120 miles, all electric, no oil, hand free, fully automated, called bimodal glideways and it will transform all transportation systems, an ecological and economic boom for the US. See video and data ...more »

Lean Transportation System :: A Value Proposition

Dear DOT Team and readers, Just thought of sharing this idea with you, as I was reading through a book called "Lean Solutions" by Womack and Jones. During my last visit to US, in 2006, when I just landed up, during the initial days was commuting on the California city buses. Many times, the buses were half-empty / were not stopping even when I used to wave my hands and while I was reflecting on some of the pointers ...more »
