The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) initiated the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Public Safety Program in 2000 to increase transportation safety and mobility through new and dynamic partnerships linking the transportation and public safety communities – including law enforcement, fire and rescue, emergency medical service (EMS) providers, emergency managers, and emergency communications providers – at the Federal, State, regional, local, and tribal levels. To achieve these goals, the ITS Public Safety Program has been a collaborative effort among the Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). Through these partnerships, the program has developed and demonstrated innovative procedures and technologies for more coordinated public safety and transportation operations.
