Evaluation of Transit Wayfinding/Route Information Technologies and Strategies

The objective of this intra-agency agreement is to support the Volpe National Transportation Systems Center (Volpe Center) research effort to develop and submit a report on transit industry and traveler benefits associated with transit wayfinding/route information technologies and strategies. The Volpe Center will conduct a market analysis of wayfinding/route information products and services, define different wayfinding needs of each user (traveler), and assess the value and benefits of these products and services. Brief tests and field studies will be conducted of the emerging technologies. Doing so will allow for the ultimate understanding of the gaps that exist in the technologies and services from a transit perspective, and define where the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) can take a leadership role.
