Transit information system for California roads

Iteris : 08 June, 2009  (Application Story)
Iteris to provide traffic information system in the Los Angeles area with interactive mapping and incident display functions
Iteris has announced that the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC), in a cooperative venture with the San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG), has awarded a contract to Iteris for the rapid deployment of a 511 traveler information system for the Inland Empire region of Southern California. The $1.5 million, three-year contract is intended to provide this high growth area to the east of Los Angeles with a comprehensive, multi-media, traffic, and transit information system. Work on the project has already begun.

Under the new RCTC contract, Iteris will update the RCTC traffic map and Interactive Voice Response (IVR) telephone system which includes the entire Southern California region. The interactive map will display travel times on major highways, changeable message signs, as well as display incidents and SigAlerts as reported by the California Highway Patrol.

The RCTC partnership with SANBAG leverages over 20 years of a cooperative relationship that exists between the two agencies with respect to providing rideshare and alternative commute services to their constituents. In addition, the agencies are building upon a previously established relationship with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works (DPW) which allows the RCTC use of a traffic map and underlying IVR system selected by the DPW through a competitive process which resulted in a contract award by the DPW to Iteris.

"Having investigated various options for collaborating with parallel traveler information systems developments in adjoining counties, RCTC unanimously endorsed a recommendation by staff for the RCTC and SANBAG to jointly deploy an Inland Empire specific 511 system," stated Robert Yates, RCTC Multimodal Services Director. "We feel this best serves the needs of the residents, commuters, and freight operators in the two counties."

"Iteris very much appreciates the confidence displayed by the RCTC and SANBAG in awarding this work to the company," said Abbas Mohaddes, president and chief executive officer of Iteris. "We look forward to expanding Iteris' traveler information systems services in the Inland Empire and improving the mobility for the over 4 million residents of the region."
