Lesson Learned

Ensure adequate time and resources are available at the end of the creation of the Regional ITS Strategic Plan for ongoing stakeholder outreach
    Once the ITS Strategic Plan is complete, it is necessary to gain further acceptance from elected officials, travelers, and other community members. Adequate time needs to be reserved at the end-of-the-project to make presentations to Agency officials (e.g., Transportation Technical Advisory Committees (TTACs), County Board of Supervisors, etc.) in order to ensure program approvals and obtain their continued support. In addition, stakeholders should distribute ITS newsletters, brochures, and videos as an effective tool for ITS education/awareness.

    These actions can improve stakeholder buy-in and customer satisfaction.
