Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) involve applying advanced hardware, software, and communication technologies to transportation. They represent some of the most significant “tools” in transportation agencies’ operations toolbox. Whether you are in the U.S. or the Middle East, at the local or national level, we can plan, design, and deploy ITS to monitor and manage traffic flow, improve transit operations, reduce congestion, provide multimodal alternate routes to travelers, enhance productivity, and save lives, time, and money.

Our Expertise

Comprehensive ITS Experience
Gannett Fleming has more than two decades of experience on more than 300 ITS projects that span the entire ITS project life cycle. Our experience includes the development of ITS architectures and master plans at the local, state, and national level as well as the planning and design of public transit ITS systems for bus and light rail transit systems. 

We have significant experience with preliminary and final design efforts, including design-build projects, which meet the unique requirements of both rural and urban systems. In addition to our design expertise, we deploy, integrate, construct, and provide construction management for ITS projects. 

Ensuring Top Performance
We ensure top operational performance of your ITS by developing measures that meet your specific project needs and effectively link transportation operations performance with your agency’s overall goals and objectives. 

A noteworthy example is our development of performance measures as part of the development of Mexico’s National ITS Strategic Plan. The measures are used by government transportation agencies and private sector concessionaires throughout the country. We also have identified and evaluated more than 200 distinct measures for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, recommended 12 for use, and developed an implementation plan for each.
