STANDARDS REQUIREMENTS PACKAGE 11: TRANSIT MANAGEMENT TO TRANSIT VEHICLE AND REMOTE TRAVELER SERVICES INTERFACES

This is the Standards Requirements Package for Transit Management Subsystem to Transit Vehicle and Remote Traveler Services Interfaces. It includes the following main components: General introduction to the scope and intent of this package; Message transaction sets; Decomposition of the interfaces; Communications layer description; Constraints; and Data dictionary element definitions and sizes. It covers the interface between the Transit Management Subsystem (TRMS) and the Transit Vehicle Subsystem (TRVS), and also the interface between the TRMS and the Remote Traveler Support Subsystem (RTS). This is a somewhat unusual combination, in that the TRMS-TRVS interface will invariably be wireless and the TRMS-RTS interface will typically be wireline. However, the functionality that these two interfaces provide is very similar, and hence the grouping. The TRMS-RTS interaction is intended to cover the communications between kiosk-type devices located at roadside transit stops and the transit management center. The TRMS-TRVS interface supports a number of transit vehicle management functions, such as reporting vehicle status, providing instructions to the driver, and allowing emergency assistance requests. In addition, this interface also supports functionality for the travelers, such as ticket purchasing.
