What is AZTech™?

AZTech™ is the model deployment and regional Management of an Intelligent Transportation System developed for the Phoenix Metropolitan area… a seamlessly integrated, multi-modal regional freeway and arterial street network focused on decreased travel time and enhanced motorist safety, mobility and roadway efficiency.

The AZTech™ concept emerged as the answer to mounting concern among our civic leaders that separate transportation agendas, with varying and diverse viewpoints jurisdiction to jurisdiction, serve neither the regional traveler nor individual agency traffic managers. Since its launch in 1996, AZTech™ has become a mechanism for interfacing and integration. It has developed and assimilated the latest in innovative transportation technology, demonstrating the distinct and measurable advantages of a multi-agency regional traffic management operating coalition.

The AZTech™ mission is to champion the integration of intelligent communication and transportation systems technologies for regional solutions that provide timely and accurate information, save lives, improve mobility and enhance quality of life.

The AZTech™ vision is a world-class regional transportation and communication system that provides real-time information and on-time services to enable safe and efficient travel, meeting the needs of our community.

The objectives for the AZTech™ project are to:

  • Integrate the existing Intelligent Transportation System infrastructure (ITI) into a regional system.
  • Establish a regional integrated traveler information system.
  • Expand the transportation management system for the Phoenix metropolitan area.


  • Establish Education and Outreach Programs
  • Expand & Strengthen Partnerships
  • Optimize Regional Operations and Management
  • Plan, Develop, & Deploy Integrated Regional Systems
  • Research and Test New Technological Opportunities


  • Collaboration
  • Leadership
  • Integration
