Advanced Transportation Management System (ATMS) is an integration of
CONTROL, MONITORING and INFORMATION designed to:
- Improve mobility, safety, and transportation productivity
- Optimize the use of existing facilities and energy resources, and
- Address environmental issues
Traveler Information System is essential for the transportation system
to operate efficiently and safely. Travelers realize the benefits of transportation
information. Numerous survey results indicate that travelers are frequently
willing to adjust their travel patterns, routes, times and modes based
on transportation information.
Pre-trip Traveler Information System can help travelers plan their trips
prior to departure and before a mode of transportation has been selected.
Based on accurate real-time transportation information travelers can make
educated choices to determine the best mode of transportation, route and
time. Pre-trip information systems encourage the use of high occupancy
vehicle alternatives, such a transit and ridesharing, in place of travel
by single occupancy vehicles.
En-route Traveler Information System can also help travelers make informed
decisions and itinerary changes while a trip is underway. An informed driver
can continue on a planned route or divert to an alternate to avoid delays.
