Mainstreaming ITS within the Transportation Planning Process: Review of the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas Metropolitan Area

The purpose of this research is to better understand how consideration of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) products and services as tools to manage travel and congestion is being "mainstreamed" or integrated into the metropolitan planning process. From February through October 1998, staff from the U.S. Department of Transportation's John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center conducted this research for the Federal Highway Administration's Office of Metropolitan Planning and Programs. This document details efforts taken by the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan planning organization (MPO), the Texas Department of Transportation, and other transportation agencies in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Area to mainstream ITS. This research revealed that mainstreaming ITS can be assisted by the public endorsement of ITS, communication and coordination among transportation agencies, and the collection of data and use of information.
