ITS Architecture

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. It can be used for planning, deployment and integration of technology.

MTC has completed the development of the Bay Area Intelligent Transportation Systems website upgrade. This dashboard, an interactive integration of connected mobility projects, is a blueprint for integrating and coordinating various transportation technologies collectively known as ITS.

Authorized users of the ITS Architecture website are able to make changes to the status of their projects in the following 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
