ITS has traditionally offered municipal agencies the promise of increased asset performance at compelling benefit/cost ratio, especially when compared with the investments required to expand network capacity. However, there is frequently less emphasis placed on positive operational outcomes and customer experience, as a result of which anticipated benefits are not always achieved. This session will approach the question of ITS investments from an end user perspective using a rich blend of international case studies.
