Management Information Benefits of Integrating Electronic Fareboxes with Other On-Board Equipment
Report Number: IDEA-04
This project developed design specifications for a system to integrate farebox information with on-board electronic equipment and vehicle area network suitable for use by transit agencies and farebox manufacturers. In Stage 1, a review of other on-board devices, including headsigns, vehicle location systems, annunciators, radios, and PCMCIA card readers was conducted. Standards for vehicle area networks were reviewed and a model for estimating passenger-miles from boardings and location information was developed. The model was tested with data provided by Los Angeles Metro in Stage 2. Work on Stage 2 developed integration of the farebox information system with on-board equipment. Integration of a farebox information system with other on-board equipment and the vehicle area network was completed. Design specifications for the farebox information integrating system were produced.
