Regional ITS Architecture

The Buffalo-Niagara Bi-National Regional Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Architecture is a roadmap for transportation systems integration in the Buffalo-Niagara region over the next 20 years. The architecture has been developed through a cooperative effort by the region’s transportation agencies, covering all modes and all roads in the region. The architecture represents a shared vision of how each agency’s systems will work together in the future, sharing information and resources to provide a safer, more efficient, and more effective transportation system for travelers in the region.

The architecture is an important tool that will be used by

  • Operating agencies to recognize and plan for transportation integration opportunities in the region.
  • Planning agencies to better reflect integration opportunities and operational needs into the transportation planning process.
  • Other organizations and individuals that use the transportation system in the region.

The architecture provides an overarching framework that spans all of these organizations and individual transportation projects. Using the architecture, each transportation project can be viewed as an element of the overall transportation system, providing visibility into the relationship between individual transportation projects and ways to cost-effectively build an integrated transportation system over time.
