Pelosi Announces Funding for San Francisco Traffic Management

August 18, 1999

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) today announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation is granting almost $1.19 million for the San Francisco Integrated Transportation Management System (ITMS) to improve freeway and arterial operations. "This funding will allow the system to increase traffic flow and safety, reduce congestion, inform motorists of traffic conditions immediately, and improve responsiveness to highway incidents."

ITMS, a tool for improving the city-wide management of traffic, coordinates the efforts of various jurisdictions to optimize freeway and arterial operations. It will eventually become the vehicle for meshing the responses of multiple agencies and rationalizing the movement of critical information throughout the region.

Partners in the system include Caltrans, California Highway Patrol, Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), MUNI, San Francisco 911 Emergency Center, Daly City, Golden Gate Transit, AC Transit, and other communication systems and transportation and transit operators. The completed system will involve traffic flow and safety, reduce congestion, inform motorists of real-time traffic conditions, improve responsiveness to planned events and incidents, and enhance communications.
