FHWA Rule/FTA Policy
On January 8, 2001 the Final Rule on ITS Architecture and Standards Conformity (Final Rule) and the Final Policy on Architecture and Standards Conformity (Final Policy) were enacted by the FHWA and FTA respectively. The Final Rule/Final Policy ensures that Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) projects carried out using funds from the Highway Trust Fund including the Mass Transit Account conform to the National ITS Architecture and applicable ITS standards. This will be accomplished through the development of regional ITS architectures and using a systems engineering process for ITS project development.
