The ITE Central Coast Section was formed in 1996 to better facilitate discussion and interaction between transportation professionals along the central coast of California. The Section is comprised of members from three central coast counties; Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo.
ITE is an International organization of over 15,000 members in 92 countries focused on transportation. ITE is made up of 10 districts across the world. Members come from public agencies (federal, state, MPO, county, city), private firms, academia, manufactures and suppliers of transportation equipment/ products. ITE’s mission is to provide the global community of transportation professionals with the knowledge, practices, and skills to serve the needs of their communities and help shape the future of the profession and transportation in the societal context.

ITE provides a platform for its members to share information. Through organized meetings at the local, regional, and national level, our members can build their circle of professional acquaintances from other peer agencies and firms, develop relationships that last a career. Our members can share experiences and perspectives on issues with people they grow to know – and be only one email or call away from support and advice.
ITE provides ample opportunities for people to enhance their career training through ongoing attendance at meetings, participation on councils, committee participation, and elected leadership opportunities.
