Modernization of the New York City Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Infrastructure

New York City (NYC) intelligent transportation systems (ITS) infrastructure modernization project is the largest scale and most cost effective worldwide. It entails upgrading thousands of City traffic signal controllers, deploying a citywide cellular based wireless communication network and upgrading of the central transportation systems to handle applications such as Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), Transit Signal Priority (TSP) and adaptive traffic control. All systems comply with US national ITS standards. This modernization affects million of NYC multimodal travelers daily - reducing delays, vehicles emission and improving the environmental quality of life. The federally funded project brings NYC to the current state of the art in transportation technologies.
