Project Objective Hypothesis • Evaluate and assess reduction in greenhouse gases in transit operations Project Objective Hypothesis • Evaluate and assess reduction in greenhouse gases in transit operations – Develop and evaluate dynamic routing/scheduling based on real-time data and information • Develop and evaluate real-time/future demand at bus stops • Develop and evaluate enabling communication networks • Develop and evaluate fuel consumption models – Document and access change to transit operations through system integration

TIGGER Grant Overview TIGGER – Transit Investment in Greenhouse Gas and Energy Reduction • TIGGER Grant Overview TIGGER – Transit Investment in Greenhouse Gas and Energy Reduction • BT and VTTI are partnering to complete this study on the effects of Dynamic Bus Routing and Scheduling to conserve fuel and provide better customer service.

TIGGER Grant General Idea • Collect data at stop-level to build a better picture TIGGER Grant General Idea • Collect data at stop-level to build a better picture of demand in near real-time. • Proactive vs. Reactive – Will be able to predict when additional buses will be needed before the need arises

Reason for Study To see if it is possible to use dynamic routing to: Reason for Study To see if it is possible to use dynamic routing to: • Reduce CO 2 gases/fuel usage • Enable a more efficient transit system • Increase customer satisfaction

Project Scope • Project Planning – develop schedule, routing model development and implementation. • Project Scope • Project Planning – develop schedule, routing model development and implementation. • Data collection – evaluation and selection of methods and hardware for data collection. • Data analysis and modeling algorithm development • Implementation and testing of the routing/scheduling plan • System-wide implementation

Partners • Kimley-Horne – Keep us on schedule – Serve as liaison • VTTI Partners • Kimley-Horne – Keep us on schedule – Serve as liaison • VTTI – Develop model to measure success – Partner in deciding technologies, routes, and other aspects of project

What this means? • We will be trying out various technologies – Cameras – What this means? • We will be trying out various technologies – Cameras – Apps – Hokie Passport Readers • They will be used to show us where the people are waiting

Next Steps • Survey- emailed to students end of September • Procure equipment • Next Steps • Survey- emailed to students end of September • Procure equipment • Install equipment • Run study in Spring 2014 • Analyze results and produce reports

Changes You May See • We have to engage internal and external customers to Changes You May See • We have to engage internal and external customers to make sure the project is clear • There may be a greater call volume with questions/complaints about service • There will be several technologies we need to procure and process

Where We Are • Procuring data logger to pull back information • Testing various Where We Are • Procuring data logger to pull back information • Testing various technologies (i. e. Cameras) • Setting up database to house information • Sending out survey to gauge rider opinion

Planned Time frame • April 2013 - Kick off Meeting! • Summer 2013 – Planned Time frame • April 2013 - Kick off Meeting! • Summer 2013 – Procure Equipment • Fall 2013 – Deploy Equipment • Winter 2013Spring 2014 – Evaluation • Summer 2014 – End of study and Analysis
