The Winston-Salem Mobility Manager (WSMM) project is an operational test sponsored by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) under its Advanced Public Transportation Systems (APTS) program. The objectives of the WSMM are of two types. The first, general in nature, intends to produce transferable results on a relatively broad level: Demonstrate mobility management in a mid-sized transit system; Develop innovative APTS concepts for mid-sized cities; and, Provide a test bed for future APTS technologies. The second, more concrete, includes those objectives specific to WSTA and the services affected by the test: Improve the quality, timeliness, and availability of customer information; Increase the convenience of fare payments within and between modes; Increase service reliability; Minimize passenger travel and wait times; Improve schedule adherence and incident response; Improve the timeliness and accuracy of operating data for service planning and scheduling; Provide integrated information management systems and develop improved management practices; Facilitate the ability to provide discounted fares to special user groups; and, Improve the mobility of users with ambulatory disabilities.
