USING A REGIONAL ITS ARCHITECTURE TO SUPPORT METROPOLITAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING

The Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) emphasizes the mainstreaming of ITS strategies into traditional transportation planning processes. This paper describes how a regional architecture can be developed to serve as a framework for planning, defining, and integrating regional ITS systems. While incorporating consensus based regional architectures into the planning arena will improve the position of ITS projects competing for federal or state funding, the paper also argues that developing a regional architecture is consistent with and supportive of the traditional planning process
