Virtual Transit Enterprise Project

The objective of this project is to design, develop, implement, and demonstrate a Virtual Transit Enterprise (VTE) system that electronically links South Carolina public transit providers with South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT). This project supports the efforts of the South Carolina DOT to design, develop, implement, and demonstrate a VTE system that electronically links South Carolina public transit providers with South Carolina DOT, within a geographical region to share information and software applications. VTE enables transit providers to accomplish business-related activities in a more efficient and timely manner. This effort completes Phase 3 of the project. Major tasks include (1) installation and integration of remaining computer hardware, software, and networking equipment to support transit agencies, (2) user training and demonstration of VTE system, (3) documentation of VTE system benefits, and (4) cost estimate and plan to maintain VTE system. The VTE system links transit agencies with South Carolina DOT in an efficient network of information sharing and software applications.
