National ITS Architecture Consistency Meetings

AGENCIES: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Federal Transit 
Administration (FTA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice announces a series of regional meetings at which 
DOT will discuss national ITS architecture consistency as it relates to 
highway and transit improvements that incorporate Intelligent 
Transportation Systems (ITS). It is anticipated that the upcoming 
surface transportation reauthorization bill will require federally 
funded projects which contain ITS elements to be consistent with the 
National ITS Architecture and approved standards. In anticipation, DOT 
is initiating a series of outreach meetings to engage a broad range of 
stakeholders in discussions regarding consistency requirements. These 
meetings will be of interest to those involved in the planning, design 
and implementation of technology applications in transportation. The 
first meeting will be held in the Boston area. Regional meetings are 
also planned for March in Houston, TX and Los Angeles, CA; specific 
dates and locations will be published at a later date. Additional 
meetings are proposed for April and May.

DATES: The Boston area meeting will be held February 25-26, 1998, from 
8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on February 25th and from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 
p.m. on February 26th.

ADDRESSES: The Boston area meeting will be held at the Volpe National 
Transportation Systems Center, 55 Broadway, Kendall Square, Cambridge, 
Massachusetts.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National ITS Architecture is a master 
blueprint for building an integrated, multimodal, intelligent 
transportation system. It provides a common framework that define key 
elements required for ITS functions. As such, it is an invaluable 
resource for planners, builders, designers, and operators of highway 
and transit systems to use in extending and integrating their systems 
operations.
    A general introduction to ITS will be provided, but presentations 
will assume a basic awareness of technology applications in 
transportation. The

meetings will include a brief introduction to the National ITS 
Architecture and associated standards, current thinking by DOT on 
possible approaches to consistency, and breakout sessions for 
discussion among attendees on consistency-related issues.

Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (202) 366-8028; Ronald
