Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) provide comprehensive management and operational strategies that use integrated technologies to improve the efficiency, safety and security of transit services. Technologies such as mobile data terminals, automated vehicle location systems, passenger counters, electronic fare media, and customer information systems have the potential to make transit systems more efficient and more responsive to passengers. TranSystems has researched the state-of-the-art and practice in ITS and is well-positioned to evaluate and recommend the best options for your system.
TranSystems offers a team of experienced transit ITS specialists who use structured, but innovative, approaches that help you determine and deploy the most appropriate technologies for your agency. In fact, we co-authored the Advanced Public Transportation Systems: The State-of-the-Art reports, and developed and deliver five National Transit Institute courses on acquiring and using new technologies. We provided the technical planning for the very first deployment of ITS technology in a statewide application.
After we determine which technologies and tools will best help you meet your goals, we can guide you all the way through implementation and evaluation through research and evaluation; design, development and deployment; specification development; procurement assistance for selected technologies; implementation assistance and training; and ITS deployment evaluation.
Our goal is to fuel our clients’ appreciation of the promise and the power of transportation; and to partner with them in realizing its full potential.
