The Regional Transportation Management Centre (RTMC) is a multi-jurisdictional, multi-agency centre that will support the centralization of traffic operations and incident management in the Lower Mainland. The RTMC is also designed to promote regional data sharing and perform as an Emergency Operations Centre during a major event. The RTMC will be connected to local operations centres such as the George Massey Tunnel, Golden Ears Bridge and Lions Gate Bridge, as well as a network of cameras, sensors, DMS's and feeds from emergency services. The Advanced Traffic Management System the centre is using will provide quicker response to traffic incidents through early detection systems as well as automating driver information. 

The tour of the RTMC will cover both the Command Centre as well as the Server Room that houses all the systems. You will get to see how the operators control various aspects of the tasks at the RTMC along with an overview of the tools available to them through the system. Ashok will also provide a brief update on the RTMC roadmap as it pertains to the evolution of the technology and processes.
