- Ferrovial subsidiary Cintra was selected for the Oregon Department of Transportation’s Connected Vehicle Ecosystem project
- Cintra was also selected for Oregon’s Road Usage Charging program
- The projects strengthen Ferrovial’s position in developing innovative digital solutions to advance mobility
AUSTIN, July 13, 2023 – Ferrovial, a global leader in infrastructure solutions, today announced its subsidiary Cintra has been selected as the preferred bidder on two programs overseen by the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT). Cintra, through its digital business venture, NextMove, is leading the development of innovative technologies to power the future of transportation and mobility.
“We are pleased to partner with the Oregon Department of Transportation and believe the state sets the standard that others look to follow,” said Brad Wright, CEO of NextMove. “By participating in these projects, we continue to position ourselves as a trusted resource both in Oregon as well as other markets across the US.”
Cintra will serve as a Commercial Account Manager for OReGO, ODOT’s Road Usage Charging (RUC) program, in which participating Oregonians pay a per-mile charge for the miles they drive and receive a credit for fuel tax paid at the pump. NextMove will serve as the interface between drivers and ODOT to collect and report the mileage driven; it will also remit payments to the state as an alternative to a higher registration fee for electric vehicles and fuel-efficient vehicles.
The second project is the Connected Vehicle Ecosystem (CVE), which has been newly created to support Oregon’s Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) and RUC efforts. Cintra will provide the ideation, planning, development, demonstration, implementation, operation, and maintenance of the CVE that will support RUC and ITS safety and mobility applications. The CVE’s objective is to solve a growing need both in Oregon and other states to collect, normalize and leverage various systems that serve as data origination points to create the backbone for current and future use cases, including ITS, Safety and RUC.
“We are excited to partner with ODOT and continue to innovate to create the next generation of intelligent infrastructure,” said Wright.
For the awarded ODOT projects, Cintra is partnering with ClearRoad on OReGO; and with Rekor, Gannet Fleming, and ClearRoad on the CVE project.
