About ITS

Advances in technology are enabling us to build a smarter transportation system, permitting everyone to make better travel decisions and experience fewer delays. ITS technology leads to reduced traffic congestion, safer roads, smarter transit vehicles and service, less wasted fuel, better air quality, and increased capacity and functioning of our transportation systems.

One of the roles of SPC’s Transportation Operations and Safety Committee is to bring together ITS stakeholders from across the region to share information on current projects and future ITS applications that will serve Southwestern Pennsylvania’s transportation users.

Integrated Corridor Management Workshop

Recent ITS Activities

SPC continues to foster ITS regional collaboration and coordination. SPC's work program related to ITS includes:

  • Providing leadership, coordination, and technical support to ITS project sponsors
  • Assisting with the update of the Regional ITS Architecture in support of the Regional Operations Plan
  • Tracking the status of ITS projects and initiatives
  • Disseminating ITS related project information to regional ITS stakeholders, decision-makers, and the general public
  • Encouraging before/after evaluation of ITS projects

SPC staff has executed agreements with the City of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University to incorporate an adaptive traffic control system as well as antennas for a connected vehicle environment into the City of Pittsburgh Baum/Centre project.  These elements will be funded with private dollars. Adaptive traffic control signal systems, operating with advanced detection and processing technologies, adjust the signal timings to accommodate changing traffic patterns and demand. A study of potential corridors for a Bus Transit Priority signal system is also underway.
