Information Flow Definitions
emergency transit schedule information (Planned) Selected Comm Solution
Information on transit schedule and service changes that adapt the service to better meet needs of responders and the general public in an emergency situation, including special service schedules supporting evacuation.
incident information (Planned) Selected Comm Solution
Notification of existence of incident and expected severity, location, time and nature of incident. As additional information is gathered and the incident evolves, updated incident information is provided. Incidents include any event that impacts transportation system operation ranging from routine incidents (e.g., disabled vehicle at the side of the road) through large–scale natural or human–caused disasters that involve loss of life, injuries, extensive property damage, and multi–jurisdictional response. This also includes special events, closures, and other planned events that may impact the transportation system.
road network conditions (Planned) Selected Comm Solution
Current and forecasted traffic information, road and weather conditions, and other road network status. Either raw data, processed data, or some combination of both may be provided by this flow. Information on diversions and alternate routes, closures, and special traffic restrictions (lane/shoulder use, weight restrictions, width restrictions, HOV requirements) in effect is included.
traffic control priority request (Planned) Selected Comm Solution
Request for signal priority at one or more intersections along a particular route.
traffic control priority status (Planned) Selected Comm Solution
Status of signal priority request functions at the roadside (e.g., enabled or disabled).
transit probe data (Planned) Selected Comm Solution
Aggregate probe data derived from tracking transit vehicles. Data collected could include transit vehicle speeds and travel times for a given link or collection of links.
transit system data (Planned) Selected Comm Solution
Current transit system operations information indicating current transit routes and fares, the level of service on each route, and the progress of individual vehicles along their routes for use in forecasting demand and estimating current transportation network performance.
