Intelligent Transportation Systems
Contact: Steven Bostel
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) use technology to improve traffic flow, safety, air quality, and fuel efficiency when moving people and goods. The SCTPO is currently developing a Master Plan that can be used to guide the implementation of ITS strategies throughout the County.
With ITS, computer-aided signal coordination optimizes travel speed for a smoother, more predictable traffic flow.
Other benefits include:
- Reduced time lost from delays and stops
- Reduced fuel consumption
- Reduced chance of rear-end crashes
- Improved traffic flow during evacuations
- Improved emergency response
- Improved air quality
- Reduced road rage
