  • Abstract:
    This report evaluates the use of ITS Metropolitan Deployment Tracking concepts for transportation planning in the Tucson, Arizona metropolitan area. The ITS Metropolitan Deployment Tracking Project is an ongoing effort aimed at measuring the extent of ITS deployment in 78 of the largest metropolitan areas. The overall goal of this work is to express the level of deployment and integration in clear and understandable terms through a methodology that can be consistently applied to all metropolitan areas. A large body of information concerning ITS deployment in these metropolitan areas has been assembled, gathered through surveys sent to major agencies within each area. These data have been applied to common measures for deployment and integration, consisting of a set of numerical indicators tracked for each of the metropolitan areas. Using this methodology, progress in the deployment of integrated ITS within the major metropolitan areas has been tracked through a series of nationwide surveys carried out in 1997, 1999, and 2000. In addition to tracking national progress, an important goal of this work has been to make the information gathered generally available, particularly to transportation agencies to assist in local ITS deployment planning. This report evaluates the utility of deployment tracking data and indicators to local planners by evaluating the ITS deployment planning experience in Tucson, Arizona. It traces the development of deployment goals in Tucson using a network-based methodology and demonstrates the use of deployment tracking indicators in creating an accurate picture of the metropolitan-wide planning goals resulting from this planning methodology.
