ODOT is transitioning to a new and improved probe data analytics platform called Regional Integrated Transportation Information System, or RITIS. For the past several years, the ODOT has contracted with Iteris for access to the iPEMS analytics platform utilizing probe data from HERE Technologies. Our contract with Iteris ended on May 18, 2020, meaning Oregon users who have existing accounts with iPEMS no longer have access after that date.
As a replacement for the iPEMS system, ODOT signed an agreement with the University of Maryland for access to the RITIS, beginning on May 1, 2020. The RITIS platform will incorporate INRIX probe data from 2016 through the present day for all public roads in Oregon and Clark County, Washington. RITIS is a situational awareness, data archiving and probe data analytics platform developed by the University of Maryland in collaboration with a number of state DOTs.
RITIS offers new features
RITIS will offer similar reports and analysis tools to those that were available in iPEMS, but has new features such as:
- Integration of Oregon state highway traffic volume data that will enable cost of delay analysis.
- RITIS will integrate agency incident and weather data that will enable users to examine the causes of delay and provides other useful tools for post incident reviews.
- We are integrating ODOT traffic signal locations into RITIS to enable use of some signalized arterial performance metrics that are included in the platform.
How to get access to RITIS
Under ODOT's agreement, not only are RITIS user accounts available to all ODOT employees, but they are available to any public agency in the State of Oregon, or any consultant or university staff performing work for a public agency in the State of Oregon — free of charge. Non-ODOT accounts will require the organization to sign an INRIX data use agreement to set up 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 ensure your organization has a signed INRIX data use agreement on file and if so, you will be provided an account. If there isn’t one on file, RITIS staff will have your organization sign one that will cover every user from your organization.

|End of August||All ODOT real time data sources, state highway traffic count data and traffic signal locations will be loaded and available for use.|
Thank you to those who were able to participate in our "Overview of the RITIS and Probe Data Analytics" virtual presentations. For those that missed them, we have a session recording available.
