In 1996, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) asked the ENTERPRISE Program to help them conduct a rural outreach study. The objective was to identify and describe proven, cost-effective ITS solutions for rural transportation-related problems and needs. The result was a stand-alone document targeted at rural transportation professionals. It described simple ITS solutions developed by rural transportation professionals to address their common problems. The document detailed the cost, requirements, and effectiveness of each simple solution. It also provided contact information and a scope that would help rural agencies implement the simple solutions in their own jurisdictions.
The ENTERPRISE Inform project followed the completion of this project.
Project Duration: 1995-1997
