Lesson Learned

Include certain components to make the Regional ITS Strategic Plan useful in implementation

The Regional ITS Strategic Plan should focus on a list of ITS projects to deploy, their implementation timeline (i.e., short-, medium-, and long-term), integration approach, available funding sources, and procurement methods. The plan should also outline the institutional framework to deploy, operate, maintain, and manage the Regional ITS system (e.g., approach, roles, responsibilities, etc.). In addition, it should serve as the primary resource in the on-going consensus building associated with the ITS Program. Furthermore, it should be used as a primary source of input for inclusion in the next updates of the RTPs, TIPs, and other transportation planning documents.
