dc.description.abstractSeveral regions around the United States and Puerto Rico have been facing increasingly complex problems related to their transportation systems. In many cases, the use of advanced technology and strategies collectively known as Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) have helped to substantially improve their transportation systems. The integration of all the ITS components in a framework is called the ITS system architecture and has usually been an important part of the success in improving the transportation system. This work presents the methodology followed to develop the regional ITS architecture for the San Juan Metropolitan Area. Initially, the region is described including the stakeholders group and identified needs. A description of user services, operational concepts and functional requirements is then presented. These steps lead to the presentation of the system architecture based upon the National ITS Architecture. At the end, the implications of the architecture in terms of planning and project development are discussed.en_US
