  • Abstract:
    The Montachusett Area Regional Transit Authority (MART) MART was established in 1978 to provide public transportation to the 18 Massachusetts communities. MART fixed-route service operates with 26 buses. Its paratransit services are more extensive, and operate throughout Eastern Massachusetts with approximately 120 vans minivans, and station wagons. The need for transit in the primarily rural areas serviced by MART is significant. Geographically, the MART service area is comprised of hilly terrain and presents daily difficulties in maintaining continuous and reliable radio communications with vehicle operators. In August 2000, MART received a grant from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to deploy a pilot program for an Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL)/Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) (AVL/MDT) system and to integrate this system with their existing reservation and dispatch system. The goal of the project was to support MARTs ITS objective of enhanced and expanded transportation and transit mobility. This report presents a project overview challenges and lessons learned for implementation of ITS technologies at the Montachusett Area Regional Transit Authority (MART)
