Intelligent Transportation Systems, or ITS, encompass a wide range of communications-based information and electronics technologies. By integrating them into the transportation system’s infrastructure, these technologies may be able to assist with relieving congestion, improving safety, and enhancing productivity by reducing the overall trip time for both people and goods. In some cases, ITS technologies may be able to provide additional data for traffic analyses.

The ITS Architecture Report summarizes the coordination efforts between agencies who operate the ITS systems in the Louisville/Jefferson County KY-IN Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA). Please visit KIPDA’s Regional ITS Architecture page for more information on ITS coordination for the region.

Additional ITS resources are available from TRIMARC and FHWA.
