Traveler Information Systems - ADA Guidebook

The objective of this project is to develop a guidebook for advanced traveler information systems appropriate for persons with disabilities. One of the most widely implemented intelligent transportation systems (ITS) technologies in public transit today is the traveler information system. This project provides additional support to enable the research team to complete the development of a guidebook for advanced traveler information systems appropriate for persons with disabilities. The project is based on research learned in an earlier project, Bus Signage Guidelines for Persons With Visual Impairments, and will include a literature review, telephone interviews, and a human factors assessment of bus signage in terms of meeting the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Project is funded under the National ITS Program, administered by the Department's ITS Joint Program Office.
