Washington, DC’s District Department of Transportation (DDoT) has selected TransCore to develop and integrate an advanced software solution that enables District traffic management personnel to more effectively manage congestion, roadway incidents, and special events.
Known as the TransSuite Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS), TransCore’s software applications will be integrated with the DDoT’s existing signal control system and other systems, forming the Capital Traffic Operation Platform (CapTOP) ATMS.
