This paper provides summary profiles of the APTS research projects currently underway in the FTA's Advanced Public Transportation Systems/APTS program. The projects profiled are listed under one of the following three technology areas of the program: Smart Traveler Technology, which focuses on providing both pre-trip and en-route travel information to transit users before they make personal decisions on how to travel; Smart Vehicle Technology, which integrates vehicle-based APTS technologies into a single system that is designed to improve vehicle and fleet planning, scheduling and operations; and Smart Intermodal Systems which involve the integration of APTS technologies into transit management and other non-transit applications of ITS. This project summary paper is updated and disseminated periodically to keep the transit community well-informed of the current research activities of the advanced technology projects sponsored by the FTA.
