USDOT Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Initiative Transit Data Gap Action Plan Workshop Notes This document contains the notes from the USDOT Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Transit Data Gap Action Plan Workshop. Participants discussed different methods for counting passengers, potential manufacturers, and barriers to real-time data collection of passenger numbers. In addition, the need for a dedicated communications infrastructure for transit communications was also addressed by the attendees at the workshop Transportation professionals in the field seeking to implement ICM can use this document to gain insight into how to overcome data gaps that exist with regard to rail and bus transit systems when trying to integrate a multimodal network Transportation agency or network owners, transportation professionals, infrastructure engineers interested in optimizing multimodal transportation networks 2/09
Webinar Series - Integrated Corridor Management Initiative: Showcasing the ICM Pioneer Sites A series of three webinars were held in July 2008 to promote the United States Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Initiative’s 8 Pioneer Sites (the sites are: Dallas, TX, Houston, TX, San Antonio, TX, San Diego, CA, Oakland, CA, Minneapolis, MN, Seattle, WA, and Montgomery County, MD). Each Pioneer Site gave a presentation about the operational, institutional, and technical aspects of their site, their findings thus far in the Initiative, and the lessons that they have learned. These webinars covered: 1. What is ICM? 2. The goal of ICM, the primary performance measures, and the expected benefits . 3. The path to implement ICM and achieve the goals; and where each ICM Pioneer Site is on this path. 4. A discussion of the operational, institutional, and technical aspects of the ICM system for each pioneer site. This will include an overview of the ICM concept of operations and system requirements specifications for each Pioneer Site 5. Lessons learned from the Pioneer Sites. The link for this entry takes you to a page with recordings, podcasts, transcripts, and PowerPoint presentations from each webinar. The Adobe Media Player is required to view the recordings (.flv files). The recording files contain both the audio and visual components of each webinar. Each individual presentation was also recorded as an MP3 file, allowing you to listen to the audio on any player that plays MP3 files. The transcripts were created in real time and may contain some errors. They are meant to serve as a companion to the recordings and the presentations. This web site can be used to learn about the 8 Pioneer Sites and to raise awareness about the ICM Initiative. Transportation infrastructure engineers, managers and operators interested in learning about the experiences of the 8 Pioneer Sites. 6/08
USDOT Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Initiative Transit Data Gaps for Rail Transit Systems Initial Planning Workshop This document presents the notes taken at the USDOT Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Transit Data Gaps for Rail Transit Systems Initial Planning Workshop. During the workshop participants discussed different scenarios for handling increased demand on rail and bus transit systems; the gaps in data collection that exist in rail and bus transit; and what current obstacles exist to collecting more data. This document also includes the steps that the Pioneer Sites corridors are taking to lessen the data gaps through technological advancements such as automatic people counters and real-time transit information Transportation professionals in the field seeking to implement ICM can use this document to gain insight into how to overcome data gaps that exist with regard to rail transit systems when trying to integrate a multimodal network Transportation agency or network owners, transportation professionals, infrastructure engineers interested in optimizing multimodal transportation networks 6/08
Integrated Corridor Management Analysis Results for the Test Corridor This report documents the Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) analysis, modeling and simulation (AMS) tools and strategies used on the I-880 Test Corridor in San Francisco, California. This report presents the results from the AMS process, discusses lessons learned, and how AMS can be used to support benefit-cost assessment for the successful implementation of ICM. AMS was used to analyze a number of different ICM strategies, which include: highway traveler information, transit traveler information, freeway ramp metering, HOT lane, arterial traffic signal coordination, and combinations of these strategies. The report contains detailed graphs of the operational conditions tested and relates these operational conditions to benefits-costs for different ICM strategies as well as the performance measures used in the analysis. Transportation engineers in the field seeking to implement ICM can use this document as a reference when understanding the ICM AMS framework and applying it to their corridors' needs. Readers can tailor the AMS approach used in the Test Corridor to their corridor's needs, unique conditions, and existing tools Transportation infrastructure managers and operators interested to optimize their multimodal transportation networks through ICM 6/08
