  • 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 movement. 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).
