Camden CountyTravel Management Coordination Center

Project Update

Camden County WIB Board Meeting – March 26, 2008

United we ride mobility services for all americans joint demonstration
United We Ride/Mobility Services for All Americans Joint Demonstration

“ITS technologies provide the means to enable service coordination and create a one-stop, customer-based travel reservation, information, and trip planning service for human service transportation.”

  • One of 8 demo sites

  • System planning and design (Phase 1): March ‘07- June ‘08

  • Replicable, scalable model

  • Two or 3 sites will be selected Fall ‘08 for system deployment and evaluation (Phase 2) funding

Camden county demonstration project
Camden County Demonstration Project Demonstration


Develop a Travel Management Coordination Center (TMCC) for Camden County that creates opportunities for better and increased transportation service throughout the County.

Increase access to existing public transportation for Camden County consumers.

Implement a comprehensive, inclusive, ongoing and responsive project planning process.

Stakeholder participation approach
Stakeholder Participation Approach Demonstration

  • Leverage CCWIB’s extensive outreach & networks

  • Leverage NJ’s UWR Coordinated Planning Process

  • State Agency Support – NJCAM Governor’s Executive Order

  • Talk to riders on the street & conduct focus groups

Current conditions
Current Conditions Demonstration

  • Suppressed demand

  • Limited service area and hours

  • Complex customer communications

  • Limited coordination among area providers

  • Limited integration of human service transportation with traditional public transportation

Mapping requirements to design
Mapping Requirements to Design Demonstration




System Requirements

Concept of Ops

High-level Design

  • User needs

  • Expectations

  • Goals

  • Objectives

  • System operation

  • Complete

  • Verifiable

  • Validated

  • Review/approval

  • Develop/evaluate alternatives

  • Identify connections

  • Consider standards

  • Preliminary design review

Six system elements
Six System Elements Demonstration

  • The first element (Faith-Based Collaborative) will provide an expanded capacity to serve unmet trip demand and augment the existing system

  • Next five elements relate to the customer needs previously identified

  • Use technology enhancements to address these needs

1 faith based collaborative
1. Faith-Based Collaborative Demonstration

  • Enable faith-based organizations to provide community transportation

  • Enable faith-based organizations to participate in and benefit from TMCC communication services

  • Enable cost efficiency through combined administration and purchasing

2 one call transportation communications center
2. One-Call Transportation Communications Center Demonstration

  • Simplified access to transportation information for riders – via phone and web

  • Will serve as a point for bringing new trip demand to existing providers

  • Will share routing and scheduling software with key Camden County providers to facilitate trip sharing

  • Existing providers will retain their customer intake, reservations and scheduling

3 coordination of provider trip functions
3. Coordination of Provider Trip Functions Demonstration

  • Help providers to use their vehicle trips more efficiently

  • Implement a shared software so that key providers can share customer trip and vehicle run information (Automated Routing/Scheduling)

  • Enable provider dispatchers to see where all key provider vehicles are located in real time (GPS/AVL)

  • Provide paperless trip reporting from vehicles and improved detail of data (MDC)

4 seamless fare and billing system
4. Seamless Fare and Billing System Demonstration

  • Enable unit trip costs for different providers to be billed to funding agencies (automated billing system)

  • Enable customers to pay on vehicle electronically (smart card)

  • Enable providers to generate reports in order to bill back to customers and funding agencies (billing reporting system)

5 customer communications
5. Customer Communications Demonstration

  • Provide the rider with information during their trip

  • Enable the customer to access vehicle arrival information at key stops (Next Bus)

  • Provide access to transit/provider information from key locations (kiosks)

  • Provide alert information to customers (text messages, automated phone alerts)

6 customer security
6. Customer Security Demonstration

  • Provide the rider with security and information during their trip

  • Provide On-Vehicle Security (Drive Cam)

  • Provide security at key stops (security camera, emergency call button)

  • Provide alert information to customers (text messages, automated phone alerts)

Looking ahead high level design
Looking Ahead: High Level Design Demonstration

  • Hardware, software, people, facilities

  • Connections to other systems

  • Develop and evaluate alternatives (find the best fit to System Requirements)

  • Consider standards (ITS Architecture)

  • Use commercial-off-the-shelf whenever feasible

Looking ahead evaluation
Looking Ahead: Evaluation Demonstration

  • Potential funders must see a plan to show we are meeting project goals

  • Select variables now

  • Begin “before” data collection now

  • Data collection from TMCC participants demonstrates commitment to funders
