Parsons ha received a contract from theÂ Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority to modernize a system that works toÂ facilitate transportation data exchange between approximately 125 agencies acrossÂ Southern California.
The companyÂ said Wednesday it will provideÂ technologies with big data analytics and reporting featuresÂ forÂ the Regional Integration of Intelligent Transportation System project.
“Southern California has the most congested traffic system in the nation,” said Michael Johnson, a Parsons group president.
