Regional Transportation Management Center

ITS Stakeholders within the AMPA region are in the process of establishing a Regional Transportation Management Center (RTMC) that will serve as a central command facility for regional transportation management. The project is sponsored by the NMDOT with support from ITS stakeholders in the AMPA and is programmed in the 2012 to 2017 Transportation Improvement Program. Benefits of a coordinated RTMC include:

  • Instantaneous weather and traffic/incident management
  • Co-location/presence for transportation, dispatch, and first responders
  • Coordinated response on travel conditions to the benefit of the traveling public
  • The utilization of existing ITS deployment among all agencies within the AMPA


The list of committed and / or potential stakeholders includes:

  • Bernalillo, Valencia and Sandoval Counties
  • City of Albuquerque and Rio Rancho
  • FHWA
  • Local law enforcement agencies (APD, RRDPS, BCSO)
  • New Mexico Department of Transportation
  • New Mexico Rail Runner Express
  • New Mexico State Police
  • Pueblos
  • Rio Metro
  • Transit entities including ABQ Ride

The project is in slated for final design/construction following the Concept of Operations that identifies stakeholder roles and responsibilities, functional needs and staffing, as well as phased preliminary cost estimates. Summary presentations can be accessed below:
