Posted on: July 11, 2013

AMES, Iowa – July 11, 2013 – One tool the Iowa Department of Transportation is using to fulfill its mission to be “Smarter, Simpler & Customer Driven” is a new application to organize all other Iowa DOT apps designed for smart phones and tablets.  Instead of making our customers search for each individual app developed by the Iowa DOT or our business partners, the agency is providing all the apps in one “container” app called myIowaDOT, which is available for download on both Apple and Android devices.
