Insights to the Role of Personalized Transportation Information:
Topic Description: "SafeTrip-21 Findings of the National Evaluation"
In 2008, Caltrans and its partners were awarded a national grant by US Department of Transportation to test a range of innovative ITS technologies on the California Connected Traveler test bed in the San Francisco Bay Area. The SafeTrip-21 deployments were the subject of a national evaluation conducted by Science Applications International Corporation and Delcan on behalf of US Department of Transportation. The evaluation provided some revealing insights to the future role of personalized transportation information. This presentation will describe the tests and present the findings of the national evaluation, which are widely applicable across the state.
