  • Abstract:
    The Federal Intelligent Transportation

    Systems (ITS) Program began in

    response to a directive from Congress to

    employ advanced technologies in transportation

    in order to keep the transportation

    industry in lockstep with the nation’s

    move toward use of these technologies in

    everyday life. Congress and U.S. Department

    of Transportation (USDOT) envisioned

    that the technologies could:

    • Provide significantly more efficient,

    safer travel through the delivery of

    critical safety and mobility information

    and increasing levels of automation

    of standard/daily/typical

    transportation operations.

    • Enable the seamless integration of

    multiple transportation modes,

    thereby providing travelers with a

    wider range of travel options and

    greater accessibility to transportation.

    • Integrate systems operations across

    agencies to allow for regional and

    cross-jurisdictional operations and

    decision-making, thereby greatly

    improving systems performance for

    travelers and commercial freight


    The Federal ITS Program was officially

    established under the Intermodal Surface

    Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991

    (ISTEA). The federal program was to be

    directed and coordinated through the

    ITS Joint Program Office (ITS JPO).
