RIITS stands for Regional Integration of Intelligent Transportation Systems. The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), sponsors the RIITS network. Caltrans, City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT), California Highway Patrol (CHP), Long Beach Transit (LBT), Foothill Transit (FHT) and Metro all contribute information collected through their own Intelligent Transportation Systems to the network using the Los Angeles County Regional ITS Architecture and National ITS Standards. The network supports information exchange in real-time between freeway, traffic, transit and emergency service agencies to improve management of the Los Angeles County transportation system and better serve the traveling public. RIITS also provides data to traveler information services of all kinds, which allows them to reach the widest possible audience.
