Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) can be defined as the application of technology to make smarter use of our transportation infrastructure. ITS deployments focus on providing enhanced management and information capabilities for transportation managers and the traveling public. Overall, ITS represents a viable and effective option in the “toolbox” of solutions to transportation problems in the San Joaquin Valley Region.
The Strategic Deployment Plan is intended to provide a starting point for regional ITS coordination, programming, and implementation efforts over the next twenty years. A new Strategic Deployment Plan is scheduled for completion in late 2016 to early 2017.
The Tulare County Association of Governments (TCAG) invites the submission of
proposals by qualified consultants or firms to update TCAG’s Intelligent Transportation
Systems Strategic Deployment Plan (SDP). Tulare County’s first effort to guide the
planning and implementation of ITS was the 2001 Visalia-Tulare-Goshen Focused
Urban Area ITS Development Plan. This plan is currently available on our website at
