ITS is technology moving us forward intelligently to create strong prosperous communities. Ontario will expand on the successful ITS programs in Ontario and elsewhere with the use of new technologies, approaches and synergy.
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) can help deliver an integrated transportation network that supports the economic well-being and quality of life that Ontarian's deserve.
To do this we must refine our model of how transportation systems work and organizations interact. Transportation solutions, such as Ontario's COMPASS traffic management system, provide tremendous benefits such as reduced travel times, increased use of capacity, and improved road safety. But we can do better!
We can operate all roads as a single transportation network. We can make transit an integral part of moving commuters in major urban centres to support urban growth management. We can integrate transit, maintenance operations, and emergency services in with our general traffic management processes. We can work better with our partners, taking advantage of the shared skill sets and synergy that teams offer us.
By overcoming the organizational constraints to integrated operations, we can take advantage of new technology.
