SANTA ANA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, today announced that it has been awarded a $1.4 million contract from the City of Culver City to provide a bus signal priority (BSP) system for eight Culver CityBus (CCB) lines, representing the continued expansion of its BSP solution in southern California.
“This new initiative with the City of Culver City is further testament to the efficacy of our vehicle-to-infrastructure approach to mitigate traffic congestion throughout southern California metropolitan areas, as well as nationwide.”
Under the terms of the three-year agreement, which is extendable for two additional years of operations and maintenance service, Iteris will provide design services, procurement and testing, and make operational the new BSP system at 103 signalized intersections. This project is the seventh BSP project in southern California, bringing total deployments of Iteris’ BSP connected bus solutions to over 600 intersections in the region.
“Improving safety and efficiency for all modes of transportation is a priority for Iteris and the cities and state agencies with which we work throughout the U.S.,” said Ramin Massoumi, senior vice president and general manager, Transportation Systems at Iteris. “This new initiative with the City of Culver City is further testament to the efficacy of our vehicle-to-infrastructure approach to mitigate traffic congestion throughout southern California metropolitan areas, as well as nationwide.”
Deployment of the BSP system is anticipated to be completed within 12 months. The BSP system will leverage existing on-bus systems that incorporate GPS-based automatic vehicle location equipment, wireless communications and advanced intersection traffic controller technologies.
The CCB serves approximately 5 million riders annually on eight lines that include a bus rapid transit line called the Rapid 6. The CCB service area encompasses 33 square miles.
