"Lessons Learned” Evaluation of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Implementation at Santee Wateree Regional Transportation Authority

The purpose of this “lessons learned” is to document the experience with Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) implementation at the Santee Wateree Regional Transportation Authority (SWRTA). SWRTA is a public transportation provider serving rural central South Carolina as well as the City of Sumter. This “lessons learned” documents the challenges faced by SWRTA in implementing ITS technologies. The case study attempts to provide useful lessons to other transit systems as they consider similar ventures. Among these lessons are: the need for comprehensive technology planning, strong and committed project management, employee “buy-in” and development, and budgeting sufficient implementation time with contingencies.
