Continuing advancement in communications, electronics, and computing offers the opportunity to revolutionize the
management and operation of the surface transportation system. The U.S. Department of Transportation and its member
agencies have pursued a research and development agenda, the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Program, designed
to integrate the latest in information technologies to improve the safety, mobility, and reliability of surface
transportation. Within metropolitan areas, implementation of these technologies has been carried out by a variety of
state and local transportation management agencies. In order to measure the deployment of ITS technology nationally,
the ITS Deployment Tracking Project surveys transportation agencies in the largest U.S. cities on a regular basis.
The Deployment Tracking Project has conducted national surveys on a regular basis since 1997, with the most recent
previous survey conducted in 2013. This site presents results of the 2016-2017 National ITS Deployment Tracking survey.
Eight-hundred and forty-nine surveys were distributed to state and local transportation agencies in 2016. A total of three survey types
were distributed, targeting the key agencies within a metropolitan transportation infrastructure: freeway management,
arterial management and transit management.
