Description of Paper:

The Mobility Services for All Americans (MSAA) initiative is a United States Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) research initiative that aims to enhance the efficiency and quality of human service transportation utilizing ITS.   Travel Management Coordination Centers (TMCC) demonstration is a major outcome of the MSAA initiative.  ITS forms the basis of the TMCC system by enabling two essential functional features: 1) enhanced real-time traveler information capacities, and 2) strengthened operational coordination through advanced ITS fleet management tools.  In 2008, the USDOT selected Aiken (South Carolina), Camden County (New Jersey), and Paducah (Kentucky) to develop and demonstrate the technological and institutional feasibility of TMCC and its impacts.  In 2010, Aiken and Paducah TMCCs became operational and began a new era of coordinated community transportation services.  This paper confirms that human service transportation is a previously “under-challenged” area where ITS can make a major impact.
