Travel Management Coordination Center -- River City

TARC has been selected as one of eight cities to receive funds through the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for a demonstration project to plan and design a Travel Management Coordination Center (TMCC) utilizing Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). The grant will provide in its first phase the design a TMCC that would be a national model and could be replicated anywhere. In the second phase of the grant, funds would be awarded to implement the plan and create a TMCC. In the TARC's project, the TMCC is envisioned as a one-call center that would provide trip planning, eligibility information, and reservations for transportation services within the region. It would be a collaboration of transportation providers and human services agencies, and would coordinate local resources. It would ultimately improve access to transportation services for all users, but the initial focus would be on older adults and persons with disabilities. The ability to provide services through a one-call center would be enhanced through the utilization of ITS technologies. Some of the activities included in this first phase will be an assessment of available transportation services in the region, outreach to encourage participation and coordination among transportation providers, and outreach to determine needs and to obtain guidance from consumer groups. The project team, will design functions and policies for development of a TMCC.
