Integrated Corridor Management Transit Vehicle Real-Time Data Demonstration: Dallas Case Study

  • Date Enacted: Dec 1, 2014

Summary

As part of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Initiative, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) purchased new automatic passenger counter (APC) technology for its Red and Orange line light rail vehicles to provide real-time passenger ocunts to its train control center and to provide data to the ICM decision support system. By gaining access to real-time passenger counts, DART hopes to respond more effectively to unplanned incidents on the rail network by enabling more responsive service adjustments. This reprot summarizes how DART responded ot incidents before ICM, addresses what has changed after ICM deployment, and idenitfies constraints to optimum reponses.
