ICM Transit Vehicle Real-Time Data Demonstration - Evaluation

As part of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Initiative, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) purchased new automatic passenger counter (APC) technology for their Red and Orange line light rail vehicles to provide real-time passenger counts to their train control center and to provide data to the ICM decision support system. By gaining access to real-time passenger counts, DART hopes to respond more effectively to unplanned incidents on the rail network by enabling more responsive service adjustments. This project will assess how DART responds to incidents before ICM, address what has changed after ICM deployment, and identify constraints to optimum responses.
