Modernization of U.S. Airspace

The Next Generation Air Transportation System, or NextGen, is the FAA-led modernization of America’s air transportation system to make flying even safer, more efficient, and more predictable.




 

This is NextGen

NextGen is not one technology, product, or goal. The NextGen portfolio encompasses the planning and implementation of innovative new technologies and airspace procedures after thorough testing for safety. Through research, innovation, and collaboration, NextGen is setting standards around the world and further establishing the FAA’s global leadership in aviation.


How NextGen Works

As the steward of America’s airspace, the FAA is committed to ensuring that we have the safest, most efficient airspace system possible today and for generations of air travelers to come.

Learn how NextGen is working

Where We Are Now

NextGen is about halfway through a multi-year investment and implementation plan. The FAA plans to keep rolling out NextGen technologies, procedures, and policies that benefit passengers, the aviation industry, and the environment through 2025/2030 and beyond.

Learn about new technologies

One-hour tickets can be bought from the conductor or driver on the tram or bus. Day tickets can be bought on the tram or purchased in advance.  Day cards can not be bought from the driver on the bus. Tickets are valid across the whole network from the first use, allowing you to take as many journeys as you choose within your chosen time-frame.

    Paying with cash on public transport

    Amsterdam is working towards making public transport completely cashless. Tickets can only be purchased using debit or credit as of 26 March 2018. Cash is no longer accepted on buses and trams. Read more about the developments.

    Clean Transportation | Sierra Club

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Late yesterday, the EPA released its annual automotive trends report, which found that only three out of 14 major automakers – Honda, Subaru and Mazda – met the clean car standards from 2013 to 2018 without relying on compliance loopholes.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Politico reported that EPA’s Science Advisory Board issued its final report criticizing the agency’s rollback of the clean car standards for using “faulty science” and that the current standards “might provide a better outcome for society than the proposed revision.” The proposed final rule to roll back Obama-era clean car standards has been under review by the White House’s Office of Management and Budget since January.

    NORTHEAST & MID-ATLANTIC – The message from residents of Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states to lawmakers couldn’t be more clear: the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) is a winner, and they want to see it happen. 

    LANSING, MI– Today, Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced an executive directive to create the Michigan Office of Future Mobility (which will be housed within the Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity) and an executive order creating the Michigan Council for Future Mobility and Electrification.
    The Council for Future Mobility, led by a chief mobility officer who has yet to be nominated, will make recommendations on policy and will be focused around but not limited to:

    Washington, D.C. — Today, representatives Andy Levin and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez introduced the Electric Vehicle Freedom Act, a transformative proposal to create a comprehensive national network of high-speed EV chargers along our nation’s public highway system within five years. The EV Freedom Act would create automotive and infrastructure jobs while taking a major and necessary step toward reducing emissions and addressing climate change.
