Equipment Package: Transit Center Multi-Modal Coordination

Description: This equipment package provides the transit management subsystem the capability to determine the need for transit priority on routes and at certain intersections and request transit vehicle priority at these locations. It also supports schedule coordination between transit properties and coordinates with other surface and air transportation modes. As part of schedule coordination, this equipment package shares transit transfer cluster (a collection of stops, stations, or terminals where transfers can be made conveniently) and transfer point information between Multimodal Transportation Service Providers, Transit Agencies, and ISPs.
