Intelligent Transportation Systems
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is the application of technology to improve the operations of our transportation system. Specifically ITS is the use of telecommunications and computing technology to boost the efficiency of roadway, transit and emergency and maintenance vehicle response systems, and provide timely information on travel options.
Currently, the CCRPC is working on an ITS Plan Update which is intended to address the expanded realm of ITS in Chittenden County and to respond to specific recommendations and requirements needed to bring the MPO into compliance with current ITS program standards set by the Federal Highway Administration for development of architecture and strategic plans, as well as the Federal Transit Administration’s National ITS Architecture Policy on Transit Projects.

Background & Resources
Federal legislation going back to 1991 has supported the research and deployment of ITS around the country. While early projects focused on the nation’s larger urban areas, over time, small urban and rural applications have been developed and implemented.
CCRPC developed its first Intelligent Transportation Systems strategic deployment plan in 2000 in an effort to guide the planning and implementation of ITS in Chittenden County.
In 2002, a report was produced, which provided detailed recommendations for ITS in project development. [View the 2002 ITS Project Development Final Report]
