Overview of the Technology Planning Section
As part of the Mobility and Innovation department, the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) team identifies, develops, and implements transportation technology projects that focus on better managing our transportation network to improve system efficiencies and provide multi-modal transportation options.
The SANDAG Board of Directors approved an action plan to create a bold new transportation vision with the goal to transform the way people and goods move throughout the region. This vision is shaped by five key strategies for mobility, collectively known as the 5 Big Moves—Complete Corridors: Smart, connected routes that accommodate all modes of transportation; Transit Leap: A complete network of high-capacity, high-speed, and high frequency transit services; Mobility Hubs: Places of connectivity where a variety of travel options come together for a seamless travel experience; Flexible Fleets: On-demand, shared, electric vehicles that connect to transit and provide personalized transportation; Next Operating System (OS): The “brain” of the transportation network that manages systems in real time.
The ITS team plays an integral role in innovating, implementing, and administering regional technology strategies, projects, and programs.
