New Mexico Client Referral, Ridership, and Financial Tracking Systems

The objective of this project is to create a statewide and web-based software system that integrates the human services transportation referral process with daily rural public transit operations. This project implements a transit intelligent transportation system (ITS) architecture system that provides a statewide approach to managing subsidized transportation information. The project enables the Alliance for Transportation Research (ATR) Institute, working with the New Mexico Highway and Transportation Department, Public Transportation Programs Bureau (PTPB), to develop and implement a web-based software program called the Client Referral, Ridership, and Financial Tracking System (CRRAFT). This statewide program is designed to integrate human services transportation referral process with daily rural public transit operations. For human services agencies, CRRAFT standardizes client transportation referral and works with State Electronic Benefits Transfer Card. For transit operators, CRRAFT simplifies ridership reporting and invoicing. It will help the state and rural transit systems accurately track passengers and bill trips. CRRAFT's modular design supports easy modifications, including the addition of funding agencies such as the State Agency on Aging Programs, Indian and Public Health Services, and others. Project is funded under the National ITS Program, administered by the Department's ITS Joint Program Office.
