1 GIS Data in Real-Time Transit Management Systems 2011 GIS in Public Transportation Conference St. Petersburg, FL, September 14, 2011

2 GIS Data in Real-Time Transit Management Systems Real-Time TMS: Consumers of GIS Data GIS Data Use Cases Non-GIS Data for Real-Time TMS So Where are GIS in the Real-Time Action? Into the Future

3 Real-Time TMS: Consumers of GIS Data Capital Projects Scheduling Systems Computer Aided Dispatch / Automatic Vehicle Location (CAD/AVL). Fixed-route and Demand Responsive Traveler Information. Trip Planning, Passenger Information

4 GIS Data Use Cases: Design Inputs for Capital Projects Land Mobile Radio Coverage Simulations and Design Communications Systems Backhauls Wayside Equipment of Real-Time Systems –Automatic Train Control Systems –Traffic Signal Priority –Wayside Passenger Information

5 GIS Data Use Cases: Transit Scheduling Support Demand Responsive: Trip Routing Based on Reservations, including Turn-by-Turn Instructions Demand Responsive: Geocoding of Customer Addresses ADA Paratransit (US): Determination of Service Eligibility (Within ¾ Mile Corridor of Fixed Route) Fixed-Route: Creation of Paddle Driving Instructions Fixed-Route: Planning of Detours and Bus Bridges

6 GIS Data Use Cases: Yards Determine Geo-fences for Yard-only Functions –Monitor Pre-service Checks (Wheelchair cycling) –Monitor Maintenance Movements Manage Yard Layouts for Yard Management Systems –Maintain Parking Lanes and Slots –Maintain Sensor locations (Wireless, Transponders) –Support In-building and Yard Wireless Coverage Surveys

7 GIS Data Use Cases: Passenger Trip Planning Geocoding of Addresses and Landmarks Reverse-Geocoding of Lat/Lon to Fixed Route Stops and Stations Walking Directions Map Presentation

8 Non-GIS Data for Real-Time TMS Stop Points Including Bay Lengths Route Patterns with Distances Between Stops Schedule, Blocks, Duties, Operator Assignments Passenger Information Display Locations TSP and On-Board Passenger Information Trigger Points

9 So Where are GIS in the Real-Time Action? GIS Primarily Supports Up-Front Design, Planning and Scheduling When Do Transit Operations need GIS and Maps? When they Werent Prepared! (In an Ideal World) In Operations, GIS Supports Last-resort Actions and Emergencies Management

10 Into the Future Integrating of Gray Areas between GIS and Non-GIS –Maturing Stops and Stations Concepts Into a Public Transportation Access Network –Traffic Signal Priority Engineering –Wayside Inventory and Asset Management Emphasize of Accessibility in Design Criteria Leveraging of Communities Engagement into Data and Transit Developer Ecosystems
