Many challenges to ITS deployment remain. These include the evolving roles and responsibilities among jurisdictions in ITS policy development and operations, competing priorities for scarce resources, little private investments, limited ITS expertise among transportation agencies, a lack of understanding of ITS benefits, and poor visibility of ITS projects. To respond to these issues, this multi-year project was developed to test a new approach for accelerating the deployment of ITS technologies, products, and services along major California corridors. The ICI demonstrated a unique public-private partnership between state and regional government agencies and the private sector. The Initiative brought together these groups in an effort to: 1) examine a new model for public private partnerships; 2) gain access to better real-time information that could enhance safety and transportation management; 3) deploy projects which demonstrate services that make travel easier and safer, and allow the public to make more informed decisions about their travel plans; and 4) accelerate the deployment of ITS technologies throughout California.
