The Texas Innovation Alliance partners with the Smart Cities Lab

A national non-profit, to facilitate four Communities of Practice (COPs) across a network of over 20 cities.  The COPs are peer-to-peer forums, led by public agencies, and enable the sharing of lessons learned and development of best practices in real-time.  The COPs meet monthly to conduct strategy and deep-dive calls in critical areas.  Some highlights of 2019 include non-emergent medical transport, the mobility data specification (MDS), gentrification and displacement, mobility data lakes, and transportation affordability.
