PID# 10339
 
PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
ODOT was awarded $6.839 million in federal dollars to improve the communications, scheduling and dispatching of more than 30 rural transit operators located in Ohio and to expand broadband into areas of Ohio with insufficient broadband access.  These funds were awarded by U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx through the 2015 Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) VII competitive grant program.
 
PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS:
Ohio Transit Systems are challenged with a wide array of scheduling and dispatching approaches and operating in areas with limited or no cellular service. This project will improve customer satisfaction by providing more efficient on-time demand-responsive and fixed route operations.  Improved scheduling and dispatching will lead to more efficient operation of vehicles, lower costs for transportation providers and clients, and more economical use of transit vehicles.  Reliable communications will permit rural transit operator’s to respond to emergency situations more rapidly and drivers to remain with their vehicles when involved in an emergency or an incident, thereby improving safety. 
 
PROJECT GOALS:
The goals of the T2O project are to provide a minimum set of standards for scheduling and dispatching software by supplying capital funds for software and hardware to help align and streamline these systems and eliminate base to vehicle communication gaps by improving broadband access in areas of the state with limited or no broadband connectivity.  Capital funds will be provided to broadband companies to improve broadband services in these designated areas.
