Mid-Atlantic States to Offer Personalized Transit Data

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- New York, New Jersey and Connecticut unveiled at the Intelligent Transportation Society of America conference a regional effort to bring personalized travel data to public transit riders.

Specifically, the states are poised to launch a regional intelligent transportation system project that could impact 18 million people. The project, called iTravel, will alert by telephone, e-mail, fax or pager problems and/or schedule changes with riders' regular routes.

The system also is testing a World Wide Web site that would allow travelers to receive "best-route" suggestions based on their travel needs. Riders can choose from three options: fastest route, route with the least amount of transfers and route with minimal walking.
