The Regional Integrated Transportation Information System, or RITIS, is an automated data sharing, dissemination, and archiving system that includes many performance measures, dashboards, and visual analytics tools that can be used to gain situational awareness, measure system performance, and communicate information between agencies and the general public. ODOT signed an agreement with the University of Maryland to access RITIS, beginning on May 1, 2020. The RITIS platform incorporates INRIX probe speed data from 2016 through the present day for all public roads in Oregon and Clark County, Washington.
How to get access to RITIS
Under ODOT's current agreement, RITIS is available to all ODOT employees, State of Oregon public agencies, and consultant or university staff performing work for a public agency in the State of Oregon - free of charge. Non-ODOT RITIS accounts require an organization to sign an INRIX data use agreement in order to establish a new account for that organization.
Sign up anytime
You can request RITIS access by going to
www.ritis.org and clicking on "REQUEST AN ACCOUNT" located to the left of the LOG IN button. RITIS will confirm your organization has a signed INRIX data use agreement on file and once established, you will be provided an account. If there is not an existing INRIX data use agreement on file, RITIS staff will work with you to get one in place. This INRIX agreement applies to all requests for a RITIS user account for staff in your organization.
There are three main RITIS components including:
- Real-time data feeds,
- Real-time situational awareness tools, and
- Archived data analysis tools.
RITIS offers reports and analysis tools with features such as:
- Integration of Oregon state highway traffic volume data, which supports delay estimation.
- Integration of incident and weather data, which supports identifying causes of delay and provides other useful tools for post-incident evaluation.
- Integration of ODOT traffic signal locations, which provides access to signalized arterial performance metrics included in the RITIS platform.
- More detailed information can be found on the University of Maryland CATT Lab webpage.
RITIS is being used for system operations and monitoring. As use becomes more common across the state, case studies will be shared to demonstrate capabilities. At this time, there are two example case studies that used the RITIS data:
