Condition Acquisition and Reporting System

CARS is an ITS-standards based condition reporting system that allows authorized users to enter, view and disseminate critical road, travel, weather and traffic information. CARS users access the system from any location using a standard web browser (i.e., no local software is required). This allows users to enter any condition reports or view reports entered by any other users around the state.

Currently, seventeen transportation agencies have deployed or are currently in the process of deploying the CARS system (Alaska, the City of Calgary, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York, the New York State Thruway Authority, Rhode Island, Sacramento [through the Sacramento Area Council of Governments], Vermont, and Washington State).
