ORGANIZATION FOR INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM: COMPUTER-INTEGRATED TRANSPORTATION

Computer-Integrated Transportation (CIT) is envisioned as an integrated network of public and private transportation organizations, each with unique responsibilities but working toward a common mission of facilitating travel across all modes of transportation. The objective of this study was to evaluate alternative frameworks for CIT from an institutional perspective. This was accomplished through site visits and interview at existing transportation management centers (TMC) along with focus group sessions in which strategies for CIT were presented to TMC managers and staff (only the latter is reported here). The study found that four factors have profound implications for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) implementation and research: (1) time-frame, (2) linking information to actions, (3) broadcast orientation, and (4) embracing of new technologies.
