EVALUATION OF THE MONITOR-CTA (CHICAGO TRANSIT AUTHORITY) AUTOMATIC VEHICLE MONITORING SYSTEM

In June 1972 the Urban Mass Transportation Administration requested that the Transportation System Center of DOT perform an evaluation of the CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) Monitor-Automatic VEhicle Monitor (AVM) system. TSC planned the overall evaluation, prepared the analytical data reduction, performed data evaluation and prepared conclusions and recommendations. The CTA cooperated in the collection of the data according to the TSC plan and provided candid advice and commentary without which this evaluation would not have been possible. The results of the evaluation show that until present system technical deficiencies have been corrected, the system cannot be considered to be fully operational. From the cost analysis it is concluded that this system appears to be a good public investment.
