Multimodal Trip Planner System

The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Joint Planning Office (JPO) awarded the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) funding to develop a Multimodal Trip Planner System (MMTPS). The system will provide regional coverage throughout the six-county RTA region of Northeast Illinois. This demonstration will test technical and institutional feasibility and public acceptance of multimodal trip planners, test ITS standards (in XML) used to integrate existing single-mode trip planners (components of the multimodal trip planner), and evaluate the trip planner's impacts and costs. This project is the third phase of a 3-phase project. The first phase was a multimodal trip planning needs assessment. The second phase, focusing on developing extensible Markup Language (XML) schemas built on existing ITS standards work (Transit Communications Interface Profiles and Advanced Traveler Information Systems standards). This third phase is an operational test of the system. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center will conduct a national evaluation for $300,000 for the MMTPS project, Baseline data collection will began in Nov 2006 and will finish in Aug 2007.
