An Automated Information Directory System (AIDS) will provide assistance to transit systems in disseminating transit information to patrons by telephone. This document presents the performance and technical specifications for AIDS, an Urban Mass Transportation Administration-sponsored project, to be demonstrated and evaluated in service at the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). The objective of this demonstration is to develop and evaluate a usable and effective computer aided transit information system that can be used throughout the United States, particularly where properties operate a complex transit network.
