State of the Practice on Use of Intelligent Transportation Systems at US-Mexican Land Border Crossings Academic Article uri icon


  • A research project was conducted to perform a borderwide assessment of the use of intelligent transportation system (ITS) technologies and operational concepts at and near U.S. international land border crossings. The work focused on tolling, traffic management and operations, and safety. The objectives of this project were to research, to assess, and to document how ITS technologies could be used in the following areas: (a) toll collection and management in border regions, including identification of technologies used, system components, and any special data-sharing arrangements between the United States and its two bordering neighbors; (b) transportation operations and traffic management in U.S.Mexican border regions; (c) transportation safety policy and operations; (d) traffic management, traffic operation, and traffic enforcement on tolled roads and tolled border-crossing roads; and (e) archiving of toll and traffic management data. In the interest of brevity, this paper discusses the results of the study that pertained to the state of the practice on the use of ITS on the U.S.Mexican border only.
