Signal prioritisation for LA bus transport

Iteris : 21 August, 2008  (Application Story)
Los Angeles county selects Iteris for implementing traffic signal prioritisation technology for bus transport in the metropolitan area
Iteris has been selected by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) to implement bus signal priority systems for three Metro Rapid transit corridors in Los Angeles County, California. Work is expected to begin on the project this quarter.

Under the contract with the LACMTA, valued at just under $8.0 million, Iteris will be responsible for the design, acquisition, deployment, and on-going operation and maintenance of bus traffic signal priority systems at 211 signalized intersections maintained by 18 local agencies along Manchester Boulevard, Garvey Boulevard/Cesar Chavez Avenue, and Atlantic Boulevard. Deployment of the bus signal priority systems will be completed in 30 months.

"The LACMTA Metro Rapid Program demonstrates how public transit services can be effectively developed to relieve traffic congestion and provide sustainable transportation in our urbanized areas," said Abbas Mohaddes, Iteris' president and chief executive officer. "Intelligent Transportation System elements, such as advanced transit signal priority systems, contribute significantly to the successful deployment of these modern public transit services. Iteris is very pleased to have been selected by the LACMTA to develop advanced transit signal priority systems for its successful Metro Rapid Program."

The bus signal priority systems utilize on-bus systems incorporating GPS-based automatic vehicle location equipment, wireless bus-to-intersection communications, and intersection traffic controller technologies previously implemented under the Countywide Metro Rapid Signal Priority Program. Project responsibilities include coordination with local agencies; preparation of design plans for the installation of intersection bus signal priority systems; 170 and NEMA controller and firmware upgrades; installation of intersection and on-bus traffic signal priority systems; system acceptance testing; and system maintenance and operations for the three project corridors and four corridors implemented under an earlier phase of the program for a period of four years.
