Rail Transit ITS Technical Assistance

This project provides technical assistance supporting the FTA Rail Transit Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) initiative. The research will evaluate the feasibility and potential application of integrated ITS technologies to provide more efficient and effective solutions to the current transportation problems facing rail transit systems across the country. The research will evaluate the Utah Transit Authority and at least two other transit systems in terms of the potential application of integrated ITS technologies, such as advanced traveler information systems, advanced train control, transportation management systems, mixed rail corridor operations, grade crossing protection improvements, and video monitoring. Project is funded under the National ITS Program, administered by the Department's ITS Joint Program Office.
