RouteMatch tapped to equip DOT ITS program

Posted on March 19, 2009

RouteMatch Software Inc. has been chosen as the lead technology vendor by three transportation systems in Kentucky, South Carolina and New Jersey that have received grants from the U.S. Department of Transportation's (USDOT) Mobility Services for All Americans (MSAA) program.

The MSAA program supports the use of intelligent transportation system (ITS) technologies to achieve coordinated, efficient transportation, also known as a coordinated human service and public transportation systems.

RouteMatch Software is tasked with working with each site to establish an effective and efficient coordination system  as developed and designed by each site. By integrating ITS technologies into a Travel Management Coordination Center (TMCC), each transit system can connect all transportation groups in their local or regional area using ITS technologies, such as scheduling, dispatching and routing software, to provide significant benefits and return on investment.

During MSAA Phase I, eight demonstration sites across the U.S. were selected back in 2006 for their ability to demonstrate the technical and institutional feasibility of designing and implementing a coordinated human service transportation system with enhanced accessibility features. The site selection was completed by a panel of federal partners.

Now, the final three sites that are proceeding with field demonstrations through MSAA Phase II are: Paducah Area Transit System (PATS) in Paducah, KY, Lower Savannah Council of Governments (LSCOG) in Aiken, SC and Camden County Workforce Investment Board (WIB) in Camden County, NJ -- and RouteMatch is the lead vendor chosen by all three sites to work with them on building a model system that can be applied nationally.
