Western States Rural Transportation Technology Implementation Forum: Review of 2007 Meeting

The purpose of this review is to document the 2007 Western States Rural Transportation Technology Implementers Forum (WSRTTIF): how and why it was planned, how the forum went, lessons learned and recommendations for the future. The concept of WSRTTIF originated through the rural California/Oregon Advanced Transportation Systems (COATS) partnership. This partnership, initiated in 1998 by the California and Oregon Departments of Transportation with support from the Western Transportation Institute (WTI), has sought to advance the implementation of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) to meet transportation challenges in rural areas. COATS has consisted of three major phases: COATS ITS Strategic Deployment Plan (1998-2001); COATS Showcase (2001-2006); and COATS Phase 3 (2005-present).
