SANTA ANA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$ITI #FHWA—Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the world’s trusted technology ecosystem for smart mobility infrastructure management, today announced that it has received funding under its indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for a smart mobility and accessibility initiative, representing continued demand for Iteris’ mobility consulting services.
Under the new task order agreement, which is part of a five-year IDIQ contract with a contract ceiling of up to $19.5 million, Iteris will leverage its expertise with the Architecture Reference for Cooperative and Intelligent Transportation (ARC-IT) content, as well as intelligent transportation systems (ITS) standards, to conduct an assessment of the gaps that exist in the architecture and standards environment that need to be addressed for multimodal and accessible travel (MAT). With this additional task order, the FHWA has now obligated $15.5 million in funding under this contract.
Technology is evolving and advancing to address the gaps and create continuity in transportation services, including first mile/last mile transportation that gets a traveler to and from their residence, connecting to broader transit systems, and to their destination. These technologies support multimodal transportation planning, payment, and connectivity that provides a complete journey.
The program supports statewide and regional ITS planning and deployment to encourage interoperability and connected and automated vehicle preparedness through workshops, training and technical assistance. An important aspect of the program is alignment with and support for standards development activities, as well as international coordination of ITS architecture, and standards concepts and approaches.
“Iteris is honored to continue our activities in support of the US Department of Transportation’s efforts to improve safety and mobility. This new task order will address multimodal and accessible travel, which has benefits to all travelers but most importantly, those underserved populations such as the elderly and disabled who need seamless start-to-finish transportation options,” said Cliff Heise, regional vice president Mobility Professional Services at Iteris. “Iteris is privileged to have had the opportunity to lead the development and evolution of the U.S. ITS architecture reference over the past three decades, and this is an opportunity to further that evolution to address a critical need in accessible travel.”
