Prototype Development and Demonstration for Integrated Dynamic Transit Operations - Final Report

This document serves as the Final Report specific to the Integrated Dynamic Transit Operations (IDTO) Prototype Development and Deployment Project, hereafter referred to as IDTO Prototype Deployment or IDTO PD project. This project was performed under contract to the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Joint Program Office (JPO) in cooperation with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). This final report provides a summary of the activities performed in conducting the IDTO PD project and documents the findings, lessons learned, and future considerations generated as an outcome of this work. As a prototype, IDTO was successful. It proved to be beneficial to the traveler, as throughout the demonstration period, users returned to use the application for trip planning/informational searches, and of those, over 25% took the action to monitor the trip and enable monitoring of transfers by the agencies to hold to allow for successful transfers. IDTO proved to be robust, with an uptime well over 95% based on 161 of 164 operational days. IDTO proved to be transferable, deployed both in Columbus, Ohio and Central Florida using the same core software tools. IDTO proved to be beneficial to transportation agencies, providing greater insight into system performance and allowing for adjustment to improve service. Finally, IDTO was insightful, identifying lessons learned that shape future research and deployment considerations.
