ITS INSTITUTIONAL AND LEGAL ISSUES PROGRAM: REVIEW OF THE TRAVELAID OPERATIONAL TEST

The TravelAid operational test was chosen by the Federal Highway Administration to be the subject of a case study. Several case studies were performed under the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Institutional and Legal Issues Program, which was developed in response to the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991. The objective of each case study was to determine (1) the institutional issues and legal impediments encountered during the establishment of partnerships and deployment of ITS services and products during the operational test, (2) the point in the life cycle of the operational test at which the impediments occurred, (3) how project partners and participants overcame impediments, and (4) lessons that were learned that are applicable to future deployments of ITS products and services. This case study also describes the operational test and documents its history. Interviews for this case study were conducted during the summer of 1994.
