ITS Regional Architecture for the Albuquerque Metropolitan Planning Area (AMPA) Evaluation Report

The Albuquerque Metropolitan Planning Area (AMPA) Regional ITS Architecture is the roadmap for transportation systems integration in the Albuquerque Metropolitan Area over the next 20 years. This architecture was developed through a supportive effort by the AMPA’s transportation agencies, which represents a common vision of how each agency’s systems, will work together in the future, sharing information and resources to provide a safer, more efficient, and more effective transportation system for travelers in the region. The architecture is an important tool that is been used by: (1) Operating Agencies to recognize and plan for transportation integration opportunities in the AMPA as well as the larger state. (2) Planning Agencies to better reflect integration opportunities and operational needs into the transportation planning process. (3) Other organizations and individuals that use the transportation system in the AMPA as well as the larger state. The architecture provides an overarching framework that spans all of these organizations and individual transportation projects. Using the architecture, each transportation project can be viewed as an element of the overall transportation system, providing visibility into the relationship between individual transportation projects and ways to cost-effectively build an integrated transportation system over time. The architecture also is coordinated with the New Mexico Statewide ITS Architecture to ensure consistency at those jurisdictional and operational points where AMPA based operations coincides and/or integrates with statewide planning and operations. The architecture covers services across a broad range of ITS, including traffic management, maintenance and construction operations, incident management, emergency services, transit management, traveler information, archived data management, and electronic payment. The objective of the earmarked funds was to define the Regional ITS Architecture through a series of workshops based on the National ITS Architecture, conducted by representation of the stakeholders, resulting in the agreement of the regional architecture by consensus of the stakeholders.
