What is a Regional ITS Architecture? Provides a structured framework for deployment and integration. Connects ITS services across the region. Identifies “gaps” in systems and services. Assists in the development of cooperative agreements.
What does a Regional ITS Architecture include? Description of the Region Stakeholder List Current and Future Transportation Systems Information Exchange Needs Agency Roles & Responsibilities System Functions Applicable Standards List of Projects to Achieve Goals Needed Agreements
Why Develop a Regional ITS Architecture? To identify integration opportunities To improve information sharing To efficiently deploy technology To plan for future expansion To assist in estimating/leveraging funding To deploy consistent projects/systems To comply with Federal rule

What is ITS in Lawrence? Roadway Management Transit Systems Emergency Management Traveler Information Maint. and Construction Electronic Toll
Roadway Management Signal control and coordination Traffic Monitoring Signal Preemption
Traveler Information Dynamic message signs 511 Websites
Transit Systems Transit vehicle tracking Demand response transit operations Fare Management
Benefits of ITS Field studies in several cities have shown that adaptive signal control systems can reduce peak period travel time 5-11%. Model estimates showed advanced traffic signal control systems can reduce fuel consumption 2-13%. In Michigan, 72% of surveyed drivers felt "better off" after signal control improvements. Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS) in the Astrodome area reduced street congestion delay by 46%.
Benefits of ITS In Pennsylvania, Traffic and Incident Management Systems (TIMS) decreased secondary incidents on highways 40% between 1993 and 1997. The I-95 Traffic and Incident Management System (TIMS) in Pennsylvania cut highway incident closure time 55%. In Minnesota, a $600K/yr Highway Helper Program reduced the average duration of stall incidents by 8 minutes, saving $1.4 million/yr in delay costs. The Virginia DOT has received hundreds of "thank you" letters from customers satisfied with service patrols.
