Integrated Transport Information System (ITIS)

Integrated Transport Information System (ITIS) is a state-of-the-art traffic surveillance system developed for the usage of Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL).

The ITIS is managed at Transport Management Centre in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur. According to the mayor of Kuala Lumpur, Datuk Seri Mohd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz, the CCTV feeds at the center are very clear.

The mayor has also offered anyone who does not understand how the system works to come over to the center and learn about it.

Recently, DBKL has introduced an app that goes with the name eDrive, assisting drivers by showing them pictures from various traffic CCTVs around Kuala Lumpur. The cameras are placed along roads that are normally congested. Click here to read more about the app.
