Integrated Corridor Management

This project shall undertake the development, installation, testing, and demonstration of on-board transit vehicle data collection and communications equipment to transmit transit vehicle data (e.g., passenger loads) in real time to a central facility(ies) (e.g., transit management center) in order to support integraded corridor management (ICM) operations at the Dallas and San Diego Pioneer Demonstration Sites. The ICM Initiative is a major initiative currently sponsored by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The primary objective of the ICM Initiative is to demonstrate how innovative transportation strategies and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) technologies can efficiently and proactively facilitate the movement of people and goods through major metropolitan transportation corridors. Specifically, ICM is the integrated, dynamic management of freeway, arterial, transit, and parking systems within a corridor using ITS technologies and innovative practices or strategies. It includes technical, operational, and institutional integration. In simple terms, ICM is the management of the corridor as a system, rather than the traditional approach of managing the individual transportation networks within the corridor. ICM operations occur for all operational conditions, including recurring congestion, incidents, planned events (e.g., construction), special events (e.g., concert, sporting events), and adverse weather
