TMACOG Regional ITS Architecture | click to open
The Toledo Metropolitan Area Regional ITS Architecture is a roadmap for the integration of transportation systems in the TMACOG region. The architecture covers a fifteen-year timeframe (2004–2019) and identifies all existing and planned information sharing (primarily electronic information sharing) related to surface transportation. The architecture represents a shared vision of how each agency’s systems will work together, sharing information and resources to provide a safer, more efficient, and more effective transportation system for travelers.
