Iteris hosts MAP-21 Discussion at 5th International Transportation Systems Performance Measurement and Data Conference in Denver, Colorado on June 1-2

Iteris will be hosting a workshop for agencies to share how they plan to respond to the MAP-21 System Performance Measure Rule and to provide an opportunity for agencies to see Iteris’ new iPeMS® MAP-21 Module. The iPeMS® MAP-21 Module leverages the National Performance Management Research Data Set (NPMRDS) in order to help states and MPOs efficiently satisfy reporting requirements.

Join us to collaborate with other agencies on performance measurement needs and discuss plans to approach MAP-21 requirements. The workshop will be held at the Grand Hyatt Denver and meeting room details will be provided to those who RSVP. Reserve your spot today!

Iteris Workshop I - Monday, June 1 from 12:00 PM (noon) to 1:00 PM CT
*Please note, Iteris will only be hosting one workshop during this conference, not two as previously advertised. We hope to see you there.
