NOTES:This course is based upon Turbo Architecture Version 5.0. This is not the most current architecture but if you are a legacy user, please proceed. The current version is 7.0 (as Turbo Architecture jumped directly from Version 5.0 to Version 7.0 to align the Turbo Architecture version with the corresponding version of the National ITS Architecture.) There are some minor differences in the versions but the information presented in this course is still applicable to Version 7.0. For more information on the differences in version 7.0, see the Turbo Architecture page on The National ITS Architecture 7.0 website, This training is provided to you at no cost by the ITS Joint Program Office.


Turbo Architecture is an interactive software program that assists transportation planners and system integrators in the development of regional and project architectures. This Web-based training (WBT) provides ITS professionals with a hands-on experience using the Turbo Software Version 5.0. Participants will work with simulated examples and practice exercises to create, maintain, and use regional and project ITS architectures.

At the end of the training, participants will be able to use the Turbo software to create and modify a regional or project architecture including providing a link to planning, entering stakeholders, entering inventory data, selecting ITS services, creating operational concepts, tailoring functional requirements, building and customizing interfaces, customizing standards mappings, entering agreements, creating outputs, and applying features to new projects.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Recall training objective and delivery elements
  • Verify the correct installation of Turbo Version 5.0
  • Explain the use and importance of Turbo
  • Explain Turbo's support of the ITS project life cycle


The Turbo Architecture WBT is designed for ITS professionals employed by MPOs, transit agencies, municipalities, State DOTs, FHWA Division Offices, or consultants and system integrators who use and/or maintain an ITS architecture and are involved with ITS planning, deployment, and operations.
