Development of Transactional Data Specifications for Demand-Responsive Transportation

The objective of this research is to develop technical specifications for transactional data for entities involved in the provision of demand-responsive transportation. The technical specifications should build on the framework presented in Table 2 of TCRP Web-Only Doc 62: Standardizing Data for Mobility Management,, but should recognize changes that have occurred since the completion of this research and emerging trends. This research should be a collaborative effort that engages stakeholders, including public, private, and nonprofit entities; software developers; and academics. The research should: (1) Develop specifications that may evolve, at some future time, to standards for transactional data. (2) Consider privacy and security in the transmission and storage of transactional data. (3) Identify key strategies to encourage adoption of the proposed specifications. (4) Propose and carry out an approach for testing the specifications. (5) Create an open source tool for data producers to validate their data against the specifications. (6) Create and convene a forum for consensus-based refinement of the technical specifications. This forum should have the potential to continue following the completion of this research project to support implementation of the research results.
