Advanced Rural Transportation Systems (ARTS): Rural Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). Program Plan

This Program Plan for the Advanced Rural Transportation Systems (ARTS) implements the goals and objectives established in the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (USDOT’s) Strategic Plan for the ARTS. This Program Plan proposes five years (FY 97— FY 01) of USDOT projects and activities to advance the ARTS in partnership with other national, state and local public agencies, and with the private sector. Public sector activities will be focused on an ARTS infrastructure that will support various services to transportation providers and users. The ARTS will be fully coordinated with the national ITS through a common national architecture and standards. The ARTS will focus on rural needs and conditions, but will be interoperable with extensions of metropolitan ITS, and will be seamless for travelers and commercial vehicles. The Strategic and Program Plans for the ARTS are being coordinated by the multi-administration Rural Action Team within USDOT.
