TRANSMIS: THE TRANSIT MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM

TRANSMIS is a computerized operations planning and support system being developed for the Southern California Rapid Transit District (SCRTD). The first phase, TRANSMIS-I, was developed by Peat, Marwick, Mitchell & Co. through interfacing and enhancement of several off-the-shelf software systems and is to ensure vehicles will be provided to the public in good condition and on time through five interrelated subsystems--Vehicle Management (VMS), Material Management (MMS), Production Control (PCS). Financial Management (FMS), and Project Control (TRACS). TRANSMIS-I got a major test during the 1984 Olympics when SCRTD was able to deploy 550 special buses, integrating them with its normal operations. Savings of $20 million are estimated for TRANSMIS-I between 1983 and 1987 from benefits such as increased bus reliability and availability, faster closing of general ledger, better utilization of manpower and equipment, reductions in paperwork and improved budgetary control.
