Government Authority located in Washington, DC; USA based organization looking for expert vendor for improving access and management of transit ITS data tool.

[A] Budget: Looking for proposal

[B] Scope of Service:

(1) Vendor needs to provide improving access and management of transit ITS data tool. Data from bus and rail intelligent transportation systems (ITS) are a valuable resource for transit service planning and management. In particular, vehicle location and passenger activity data from automatic vehicle location (AVL), automatic passenger counter (APC), and automatic fare collection (AFC) systems can be used to provide essential insight into transit operations and to inform decision making to increase the efficiency, productivity, and safety of transit service. There are, however, significant challenges for transit agencies in accessing and using this data.
A. The objective of this research is to develop a common, practical approach to storing, accessing, and managing fixed-route transit ITS data.  This data management approach should address the following:
1. Current data sources, access, quality, and integration challenges;
2. Relationship between historical schedule data and ITS data;
3. Differing needs of transit agencies and other users of transit ITS data;
4. Optimal configuration allowing regular improvement and sharing across the industry;
5. Exchange of reports, tools, and analytical techniques based on transit ITS data; and
6. Methods and procedures for developing operations management reporting and decision-support systems.
7. AVL data that includes stop and time-point arrival and departure times, intermediate vehicle location observations, and other vehicle event data;
8. APC data that includes boarding and alighting counts by trip and stop; and
9. AFC data that includes individual fare transactions
B. The data management approach should allow expansion in the future to accommodate other transit operational data.
The outcome of this research study should:
1. Support transit agencies in accessing and using their ITS data,
2. Prepare transit agency staff for the world of big data management and analysis,
3. Improve understanding of policy implications of changing data structures on data governance and vendor relationships,
4. Promote development and sharing of tools and reports based on ITS data,
5. Promote research using ITS data, and
6. Bottom line: improve quality, efficiency, and safety of transit service.
(2) Contract period will be for two years.
