Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, today announced a $934,000 contract award for design services from AC Transit for a corridor travel time improvement project. The project includes the implementation of transit signal priority (TSP), bus stop improvements, real-time passenger information system, and deployment of an Adaptive Signal Control Technology system.
This contract continues Iteris’ involvement on AC Transit’s popular Line 97, which spans 12.5 miles along a number of major corridors in the San Francisco Bay Area. The design phase of the project is underway with deployment anticipated in 2018. Transit Signal Priority is a highly effective tool to reduce delay and improve schedule reliability for transit operations. Currently the service time for this route is 134 minutes. Once the project improvements are fully deployed, a roundtrip travel time is expected to be reduced by as much as 15%.
“This project will improve transit operations and the overall transit customer experience by reducing traffic congestion and improving intersection efficiencies along Line 97,” stated Ramin Massoumi, general manager and senior vice president of Transportation Systems at Iteris. “Upgrading the corridor transportation technology infrastructure will produce cascading benefits that include improvements to signal operations, resulting in reduced fuel consumption and vehicle emissions, ridership growth through improved schedule reliability, and improved air quality. These benefits and goals are consistent with AC Transit’s strategy to maximize operational benefit and efficiency and achieve the San Francisco Bay area’s Transit Sustainability Project performance metrics.”
Iteris has provided transit signal operations for over 30 agencies covering more than 1,000 intersections nationwide. The company is currently involved in similar transit projects in Los Angeles, Chicago, Minneapolis, and Orange County, California.
