NOTE: You may not be able to see every feature and data source available in RITIS when you first create your account. While some features of RITIS are 100% free, others require funding. Some features and data, like the National Performance Monitoring Research Data Set (NPMRDS), require a signed data sharing agreement between your agency and INRIX before access can be granted.
Local governments (including county/city DOTs, transit authorities, MPOs, EMAs, Universities, Federal agencies, the private sector, etc.) can also fund the integration of their data into RITIS if they are not part of an existing sponsorship umbrella, and many have done so already.
A few tools and features within RITIS may cost more than others as they require significantly more data storage and processing. To ensure states don’t get charged for data and tools they don’t use, these more costly tools are offered as add-ons to the standard RITIS offering. Two examples of add-on RITIS tools include:
Annual RITIS Platform O&M
The annual cost of sustaining & updating the RITIS platform (hardware, networking, maintenance, etc.), and technical & customer support for the nearly 8,000 users. The annual RITIS platform fee sustains a staff of more than 40 full-time professional staff that operate and maintain the system 24/7/365.
Annual Data Integration & Storage
For the agency’s state or region, the costs to ingest (and sometimes license), set up, format, store, and maintain the data streams from the agency’s systems, partners, or vendors.
Custom Development (optional)
Any new feature, tool, or capability wanted and commissioned by the agency. When an agency wants to add a feature to the RITIS Platform, it may directly fund new work by itself or pool resources with another agency to jointly fund new work.Once completed, new tools or features become available to all RITIS members — each interested agency only needs to pay the costs of making that tool work for its own region (often, just the cost for local data).
Annual costs are typically based on the size of the state/MPO, the add-ons chosen, and the complexity and size of their data feeds. In the coming months, this web site will include more detailed information on the various funding models, costs, etc. for joining the RITIS program. Until then, we encourage you to contact us for pricing and other questions about access.
