Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), which include advanced vehicle systems (connected and autonomous vehicles), have the power to transform the Bay Area’s infrastructure and mobility. Bay Area ITS Architecture is a blueprint for integrating and coordinating ITS projects in the region.
MTC is guiding the ongoing development and maintenance of the Bay Area Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Architecture website, a blueprint for integrating and coordinating various transportation technologies collectively known as ITS.
Visit the Bay Area Intelligent Transportation Systems website.
The ITS Architecture covers ITS in these transportation areas:
- Traffic management
- Public transportation management
- Electronic payments (tools and fares)
- Commercial vehicle operations
- Traveler and other transportation information systems management
- Advanced vehicle systems (connected and autonomous vehicles)
- Emergency management
- Maintenance and construction management
The Bay Area ITS Architecture is continually evolving. Following a comprehensive content update in 2017, ongoing work focuses on enhancements of the ITS Architecture website that will make it more interactive, and integration of connected mobility projects.
A wireless network that includes cars, buses, trucks, traffic signals, smartphones and other devices could transform the way we travel.
Development and refinement of the Bay Area ITS Architecture is a joint effort of MTC and more than 100 partners, including:
- Bay Area cities and counties
- County transportation agencies
- Transit operators
- Ports and airports
- California Department of Transportation (Caltrans)
- California Highway Patrol
- Emergency responders
- Bay Conservation and Development Commission
- Bay Area Air Quality Management District
