TRAVELER INFORMATION INTEGRATION PROJECT WITHIN THE EAST BAY SMART CORRIDORS PROJECT

The SMART Corridors project had as its original goal to provide transit-related information to travelers using the AC Transit bus system in the San Francisco Bay Area. A "smart"system component of an Advanced Transportation Management System (ATMS) would track equipped AC Transit buses traveling along the smart corridors and produce forecasted arrival times at upcoming bus stops along the route. This component was named the BAIS, standing for Bus Arrival Information System. An amended earmark application expanded on the original project goal by adding general traffic congestion information on the freeway facilities that run parallel to the SMART Corridors projects managed arterials. This was done by adding the real-time information that was already being gathered and distilled by the regional traveler information system (TravInfo) to the SMART Corridors ATMS, so that it could also be displayed on that projects website. This document contains the excerpt of the SMART Corridors Evaluation Report that pertains to this earmark-funded element. It also includes two appendices: 1) the complete results of a public opinion survey that was conducted at the conclusion of the project, inquiring about the usefulness of the projects website for trip planning purposes; and, 2) the amended Earmark Application.
