As part of ongoing efforts to modernize its traffic signals, the City of Toronto has issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the provision of a new, adaptive ‘smart traffic signal’ system.

The city has operated about 350 smart signals since the early 1990s, but the current system has reached the end of its service life. The city is hopeful that international experts in the area of smart signals will respond to this RFP, giving Toronto a chance to adopt the best available technology.

This RFP calls for a 30-intersection pilot project beginning in late 2017/early 2018, with the option to expand the program to up to 500 signals over the next five years if the pilot is successful.
