Our mission is to develop partners for effective deployment of ITS across all surface transportation modes thus providing a viable and sustainable system for the Rocky Mountain region that will benefit all users.
Comprised of Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Utah and Wyoming, the ITS Rocky Mountain Chapter covers approximately 511,260 square miles and is the largest chapter in geographical terms.
As you know, this region is known for its beauty and space – with all of this space comes many challenges with transportation infrastructure and safety, as well as, funding issues. Which is why organizations like ITS Rocky Mountain Chapter are so important in connecting these wide spaces! We have to be creative, innovative, loud, and work together to keep our transportation systems responsive and safe!
The Board of Directors is made up of officers and senators. Officers of the ITS Rocky Mountain Chapter constitute President, Vice-President, Secretary/Treasurer, and Immediate Past President. Each state within the Chapter is also represented by at least one (1), but no more than two (2) state associate senators that are charged with increasing the awareness of the ITS Rocky Mountain Chapter within their respective states.
We provide a forum for broad representation and active participation between private companies, government agencies, academic institutions, other associations and members of the public. We operate exclusively as a non-profit organization focused toward improving the surface transportation system throughout the member states via research, development, and application of intelligent transportation technologies.
Intelligent Transportation Systems is a broad range of diverse technologies which, when applied to our current transportation system, can help improve safety, reduce congestion, enhance mobility, minimize environmental impacts, save energy, and promote economic productivity. ITS technologies are varied and include information processing, communications, control and electronics. The challenges lie in the diversity of the technology, which is highly interdisciplinary, ranging from physics to psychology.
