Advanced Public Transportation Systems Technical Support

This project is a continuing effort to support the Advanced Public Transportation Systems (APTA) Program--the transit component of the Department's Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Initiative. APTA, also called Transit ITS, offers low-cost technology based solutions to the challenges confronting the nation's public transportation systems. The Transit ITS program is designed to encourage development and implementation of innovative technologies and strategies to improve all aspects of public transportation and ridership. APTA incorporates state-of-the-art computer, telecommunications, and navigation technologies to improve the service and safety of public transit. Under this project, technical support will cover development and management of seven separate projects: Transit Intelligent Vehicle Initiative (IVI); Transit IVI System Integration Testing; Smartcard Guidelines Update; ITS Standards Development; Transitweb Maintenance; and FTA Technical Staff Support. Technical staff support activities will include reviewing, analyzing and coordinating information in support of the APTA program, as well as updating reference material on the deployment and state-of-the-art in Transit ITS technology. Products and services delivered under this project assist transit agencies in the planning, procurement, and implementation of ITS Transit technologies.
