Permian Basin Regional ITS Architecture Home Page

The Permian Basin Regional ITS Architecture is a roadmap for transportation systems integration in the Permian Basin Region over the next 20 years.  This architecture covers the Texas DOT Odessa District (Andrews, Crane, Ector, Loving, Martin, Midland, Pecos, Reeves, Terrell, Upton, Ward, and Winkler counties).  The architecture is being developed through a cooperative effort by the Region's transportation agencies, covering all modes and all roads in the Region.   The architecture that is shown reflects stakeholder input received at the workshops conducted in Odessa, Texas on March 3-4, 2004 and May 5, 2004 and final comment resolution in November 2004.

The architecture represents a shared vision of how each agencies' systems will work together in the future, sharing information and resources to provide a safer, more efficient, and more effective  transportation system for travelers in the Region. 

The architecture is an important new tool that is used by:

  • Planning Agencies to better reflect integration opportunities and operational needs into the transportation planning process.  

  • Operating Agencies to recognize and plan for transportation integration opportunities in the Region.

  • Other organizations and individuals that use the transportation system in the Permian Basin Region.

The architecture provides an overarching framework that spans all of these organizations and individual transportation projects.  Using the architecture, each transportation project can be viewed as an element of the overall transportation system, providing visibility into the relationship between individual transportation projects and ways to cost-effectively build an integrated transportation system over time.

About this Web Site

The purpose of this Regional ITS architecture web site is to encourage use of the Regional ITS architecture and gather feedback so that the architecture is used and continues to reflect the intelligent transportation system vision for the Region.  The menu bar at left provides access to the stakeholders, the transportation systems in the Region (the "Inventory"), the transportation services that will be provided, transportation-related functions that are envisioned, and the existing and planned interfaces in the Region.

Time Horizon and Services

This Regional ITS architecture has a time horizon of up to twenty years with particular focus on those systems and interfaces that are likely to be implemented in the next ten years.   The architecture covers the broad spectrum of Intelligent Transportation Systems, including Traffic Management, Transit Management, Traveler Information, Maintenance and Construction, Emergency Management, and Archived Data Management over this time horizon.
