ITS Standards Transit Training Modules

The USDOT’s ITS Professional Capacity Building Program (PCB) provides this FREE 21-module training series on standards used in ITS transit deployments to the transit community. These modules were developed with partners in the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) and with support from the American Public Transit Association (APTA). They give transportation professionals the skills to help them effectively utilize transit-applicable ITS standards to procure, install, test, and operate ITS technologies.

Also available is a 56-module series that discusses standards used mostly in ITS highway applications and includes crosscutting information about test cases, test plans, and requirements specification.
