Regional ITS Architecture

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are electronic systems that monitor, evaluate, and manage the transportation network to increase efficiency and improve safety.  ITS encompasses a broad range of technologies.  The Spokane region has been using ITS for a number of years, and most large transportation projects today include ITS components.

The Spokane Regional Transportation Management Center (SRTMC) is the primary forum for ITS collaboration between agencies in the Spokane region.  SRTMC led the development of the current Regional ITS Architecture in 2013 and is responsible for maintaining the architecture.  SRTC hosts the architecture on this website as a planning and engineering resource for the region.
