SANTA ANA, Calif. – January 11, 2022 – Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in smart mobility infrastructure management, today announced that it has been awarded a $6.8 million subcontract by Parsons Corporation (NYSE: PSN) to provide design, implementation and integration support for the upgrade and expansion of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro) NextGen bus signal priority (BSP) system, representing the continued expansion of Iteris’ BSP solutions in southern California, a key geographic market.
Under the terms of the three-year subcontract agreement, with Parsons Corporation, Iteris will provide design services, procurement, integration and testing, and make operational the new vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2X)-enabled BSP system at an additional 88 signalized intersections along key corridors in the Greater Los Angeles area.
This project will upgrade and expand the largest signal priority project in the nation, and brings total deployments of Iteris’ BSP connected bus solutions to over 600 signalized intersections in the region.
The V2X-enabled BSP system will leverage existing on-bus priority request systems that incorporate GPS-based automatic vehicle location equipment, wireless communications and advanced intersection traffic controller technologies that provide intersection-based priority granting capabilities. This new deployment of the Countywide Signal Priority system is anticipated to be completed within 34 months.
In addition, Iteris will leverage its newly launched asset management service for intersections and arterials to track and maintain the inventory and condition of equipment deployed in the field or warehoused, conduct lifecycle analysis, and monitor asset performance over time.
