The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) Office of Transportation Planning coordinates the planning for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) for the Commonwealth. In that capacity, one of the initiatives is the establishment of a robust and comprehensive ITS planning process and the development of a Statewide ITS Strategic Plan.
Statewide Intelligent Transportation Systems Strategic Plan
The Statewide Intelligent Transportation System ITS Strategic Plan will help the Commonwealth achieve its vision for the Statewide ITS Program, which is to enhance public safety, increase mobility, support economic competitiveness, and promote sustainability through comprehensive and coordinated application of technology to the transportation sector. The objectives of this study are: to plan, develop, program and communicate strategies for the development and deployment of a broad-based ITS program for the Commonwealth. The ITS Strategic Plan will support, enable, and enhance a seamless multimodal transportation system; promote safety and security; ensure the competitive position of the Commonwealth in regional, national, and international markets; and enhance social, environmental and quality of life factors for the Commonwealth's residents and visitors. The ITS Strategic Plan will engage the full range of the Commonwealth's transportation stakeholders, and build consensus for the Statewide ITS Program.
