Related to MTC's Regional Transportation Plan RTPID 17-10-0029 "511 Traveler Information Program".

Related to the following TIP Listing SF-990003 "Global Positioning System"
Design, implement, install and provide ongoing support services for a GPS (Global Positioning System)- based Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) system for MUNI's revenue fleet and inspector vehicles. The two principle system outputs would be: (1) real-time vehicle location and arrival prediction information for patrons, available through a variety of media: shelter signs, internet, cellular phones, at a minimum; and (2) archived data on vehicle tracking through time, suitable for statistical analysis, for performance monitoring, schedule adherence, and related reporting. The specified system would have an open architecture, ready for interfacing with and future replacement of MUNI's radio system. This will be the ultimate solution for the NextBus and @Road demonstration projects. This project is associated with MTC's Regional Transportation Plan RTP ID 240536 (Implement Transit Management Systems in San Francisco (includes fare management, transit GPS tracking systems)
