TransView Regional Traveler Information and
Technology Infrastructure System
The TransView Regional Traveler Information and Technology Infrastructure System is the "One Stop Shop" for live, local, real-time traffic maps, cameras, road condition and other transportation related information for the greater Tucson metropolitan area.
The TransView system:
- • helps reduce congestion and travel delays (which also improves air quality)
- • improves public safety and emergency response times
- • informs and educates users
- • assists in fulfilling local, state and federal regulatory requirements
The TransView System consists of two major parts: the www.TransView.org web site and the underlying Technology Infrastructure that collects, processes, stores and displays much of the region’s Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) information.
The www.TransView.org web site is the region’s primary source of traveler information. This information is directly available to the public in multiple formats and is also rebroadcast by local media over radio, TV and their own Internet web sites. Work is underway to provide this information to the state-wide Arizona Department of Transportation “511” telephone system and the www.az511.com web site.
Funded by a grant from the Pima Association of Governments (PAG) and operated by the City of Tucson, the TransView web site and Technology Infrastructure System is a region-wide resource available to all PAG member jurisdictions. The Technology Infrastructure consists of high-capacity servers, databases and other components specifically configured for exceptionally reliable and secure 24/7 operation.
Multiple opportunities currently exist to expand the quality, quantity, accessibility, and use of multi-modal traveler information in the region. Several initiatives are underway to provide additional or enhanced traveler and ITS information. Some of these include adding data to the TransView Traffic Incident Reporting System (www.TransView.org/TIRS) from other agencies within the PAG region, as well as the Arizona Department of Public Safety. Additional initiatives are working towards implementing expanded real-time roadway and intersection video for in-vehicle use by public safety agencies; providing enhanced public outreach and interactive communication for PAG member agencies; and creating a regional Transportation Data Archive System.
Requests from PAG member agencies to utilize these regional resources or for technical assistance can be made to Casey Townsend, TransView Program Manager at 520-837-6663 or Casey.Townsend@TucsonAZ.gov.
1. “Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) encompass a broad range of wireless and wire line communications-based information and electronics technologies. When integrated into the transportation system's infrastructure, and in vehicles themselves, these technologies relieve congestion, improve safety and enhance American productivity.” - http://www.its.dot.gov/faqs.htm
