Staff Responsibility: Jo Allen Gause
Research Agency: Resource Systems Group, Inc.
Principal Investigator: Thomas Adler
Fiscal Year: 2012

This overall purpose of the work supported by this project is to provide travelers with door-to-door trip planning options for using public modes for longer distance intercity travel integrated with local transit. The work built on a prior project that was funded by the I-95 Corridor Coalition to develop a proof-of-concept system for a region including Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York.  The goals of this Transit IDEA project were to (1) develop a fully scalable and flexible version of the system and (2) address the key institutional issue of how to cost-effectively assemble reliable schedule data which underlie the system.  Resource Systems Group, Inc. (RSG) moved the proof-of-concept trip planner along to a production-ready form.  RSG also identified institutional arrangements and partnerships that will support its deployment. 

The contractor's final report is available.
