“I want to thank everybody at the California Mobility Center,” said Rosekind. “They have just been wonderful in presenting this opportunity. And everybody that I’ve talked to is passionate professional about their mission and what they’ve done. When you look at the remarkable portfolio they’ve put together of the people, projects, and networks, they’ve established a tremendous foundation for future success”

“CMC is going to expand its impact, scope and reach,” continued Rosekind. “I think we’re gonna see an evolution of the mission to pursuing really societal safety, sustainability and equity, and seeing CMC pay a central part in advancing in all those different areas. And it’s going to do that through new mobility innovations.

“If you think about safety, sustainability and equity, everyone here at ITS is involved in one or more of those. And so besides watching CMC, I’m hoping you’re going to join us and collaborate with us as we go forward.”
