FDOT District 3 Regional ITS Architecture (Final)

ITS Stakeholders


(Printable Version)

The FDOT District 3 Regional ITS Architecture resulted from the consensus input of a diverse set of stakeholders, encompassing traffic, public safety, public transportation and other modes, special events, and many other stakeholders at the local and state levels. It includes both public and private sectors and spans the organizations that develop, operate, maintain, and depend on the surface transportation system.

This page contains a list (in alphabetical order) of the stakeholders that develop, operate, maintain, and/or depend on the ITS services. Each stakeholder has a hotlink to a definition of the stakeholder and a list of that stakeholder's specific ITS elements (if any).
