A traffic signal or intelligent transportation system (ITS) technician is responsible for the installation, maintenance, and/or repair of ITS and traffic signal systems including traffic signal cabinets, loop detection systems, and traffic signal electronics. A traffic signal or ITS technician might also assist with the development of traffic studies and design plans such as for ITS infrastructure, traffic signals, signing, pavement marking, construction sequencing, and traffic control plans. The technician may troubleshoot ITS and traffic signal equipment and make recommendations to repair or resolve any issues in a given system. These technicians may also be responsible for the maintenance of spare equipment and parts, including inventory management and documentation. Relevant technology includes CCTV systems, dynamic message signs, travel time readers, vehicle detection systems, and fiber optics and wireless systems. A traffic signal or ITS technician should ensure that traffic signal installation and related activities are conducted in compliance with applicable traffic control device regulations, standards, and specifications.

Industrial engineers and operations research or modeling analysts working in transportation operations use advanced mathematical and analytical methods to analyze and solve complex problems, assess risk, and provide a data-driven approach to decision-making. They might be involved in numerous types of projects including process improvement plans, warehouse and labor management, capital projects, inventory and equipment planning, cost saving initiatives, or logistics process design. Utilizing industrial engineering skills inherent in process flow analysis, operational project planning, efficiency or process improvement studies, statistical and mapping analysis, and time and motion studies, the industrial engineer or operations analyst will be involved in planning and designing new transportation operations, supporting existing operations, and developing comprehensive supply chain solutions.
Transit operators or drivers are responsible for the safe and efficient transport of passengers by operating transit vehicles and following traffic laws and applicable regulations. Transit commercial drivers operate buses or other revenue service vehicles to transport customers over routes with specified stops. The main objectives of a transit driver are to safely operate transit vehicles according to an established schedule and route, collect fares from passengers, perform inspections of vehicles before and after operation, and complete relevant incident report. Transit operators might also sometimes be required to assist senior passengers or passengers with disabilities aboard transit vehicles.
Commercial freight drivers operate trucks or tractor trailers to make deliveries or transport goods according to a schedule and assigned route. Freight drivers should operate a commercial vehicle in a safe and efficient manner, and they must do so in accordance with applicable laws for commercial vehicle operations. Freight operators might also be asked to determine the condition of the truck or vehicle before and after use and to report any issues.
