Secretary Of Transportation Pete Buttigieg Visits CAV Test Facility

A “Full Circle Moment” for Advanced Mobility Group

Eight years ago, Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) and Habib Shamskhou, President of Advanced Mobility Group (AMG), cofounded GoMentum Station – an innovative testing facility for connected autonomous vehicles (CAV) and emerging transportation technology. Since that time CCTA, supported by AMG staff, has continued to advance emerging technologies and expand research and development opportunities at GoMentum Station.

On Friday, September 9, 2022, CCTA and its partners welcomed several of the nation’s highest-ranking transportation officials including United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) Secretary Pete Buttigieg and outgoing National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Administrator Dr. Steven Cliff on a tour of GoMentum Station.

Built on a public/private partnership model, GoMentum Station allows the private sector space to innovate and test while providing the public sector with access to new technologies as they are being developed. The work being carried out at GoMentum Station facilitates informed policy, regulation, and planning decisions around technology.

During the visit to GoMentum Station in Concord, CA, Secretary Buttigieg and outgoing Administrator Cliff had the opportunity to tour the different test zones and participate in demonstrations.
