The report describes a computer based Data Management and Retrieval System for the Urban Mass Transportation Industry. The System is designed to aid the transportation planner, engineer, and manager in solving recurring problems associated with (1) collection; (2) categorization and synthesis; (3) storage and (4) retrieval of urban mass transportation information. The system is designed to be used by personnel without formal computer training with the everyday vocabulary associated with many classes of rapid transit operation, evaluation, and studies. The features and use of an example system is described for rail rapid transit noise abatement studies. The example system combines (1) physical data describing the system and (2) measured noise levels as an aid in evaluating cost effective acoustic treatments for lowering rail rapid transit noise.
