Part of: Microcomputer Applications Within the Urban Transportation Environment
Abstract: A performance monitoring system, properly implemented, can significantly aid a transit system's ability to operate efficient and effective services. The Capital District Transportation Authority of Albany, New York has been successfully utilizing a route performance monitoring system since 1982. The CDTA Route Performance System utilizes a microcomputer with specialized but available software as a natural resource complementing its service and policy decision making process. The CDTA performance monitoring system uses the microcomputer to derive route ridership, to generate individual route performance reports and to compare route performance over time.
