Advanced Transportation Management System

Advanced Transportation Management System (ATMS)

As our population grows, we continue to find new ways to help people move through the city. The new Advanced Transportation Management System (ATMS) provides reliable travel times, minimal delays and accurate and timely travel information to help get people where they want to go.

Working with the Region of Peel and the Ministry of Transportation Ontario, the ATMS allows the City to actively monitor travel conditions, better control traffic signals, share information and interact with other transportation modes.

This state-of-the-art system includes a Traffic Management Centre, video wall and control system. It also includes an upgrade to traffic signal communications which will help the City deliver reliable, efficient service both now and in the future.

The ATMS project involves the deployment of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), such as traffic monitoring cameras and vehicle detection and will examine future technologies such as Responsive/Adaptive Traffic Control.

The ATMS project is a work in progress with upgrades and replacements to all traffic signals expected to be completed in 2018.
