Enterprise Architecture Planning for Public Transit

As public transport systems continue to modernize, China's implementation of Information Technology and Intelligent Transportation Systems will require a focus on increasingly complex data and technology issues. The success of these systems and the management of the underlying data are crucial to the support of China's current and future public transport services. This paper describes a business-technology planning approach used by leading-edge transit agencies in the United States (US) called "Enterprise Architecture Planning" or "EAP." EAP enables open-architecture, standards-based technology planning and deployment. By using an EAP approach, public transport agencies in China can define, document and coordinate the information technology requirements and implementation plans for mission-oriented business needs. By doing so, they can support local and national collaboration for increased efficiency and improved services to society.
