Interface: RTC FAST TMC - RTC Transit Fixed Route Dispatch
Architecture Flow Definitions
alert notification (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Notification of a major emergency such as a natural or man–made disaster, civil emergency, or child abduction for distribution to the public. The flow identifies the alert originator, the nature of the emergency, the geographic area affected by the emergency, the effective time period, and information and instructions necessary for the public to respond to the alert. This flow may also identify specific information that should not be released to the public.
alert status (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Information indicating the current status of the emergency alert including identification of the traveler and driver information systems that are being used to provide the alert.
current infrastructure restrictions (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Restrictions levied on transportation asset usage based on infrastructure design, surveys, tests, or analyses. This includes standard facility design height, width, and weight restrictions, special restrictions such as spring weight restrictions, and temporary facility restrictions that are imposed during maintenance and construction.
emergency plan coordination (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Information that supports coordination of emergency management plans, continuity of operations plans, emergency response and recovery plans, evacuation plans, and other emergency plans between agencies. This includes general plans that are coordinated prior to an incident and shorter duration tactical plans that are prepared during an incident.
emergency transit schedule information (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Information on transit schedule and service changes that adapt the service to better meet needs of responders and the general public in an emergency situation, including special service schedules supporting evacuation.
emergency transit service request (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Request to modify transit service and fare schedules to address emergencies, including requests for transit services to evacuate people from and/or deploy response agency personnel to an emergency scene. The request may poll for resource availability or request pre–staging, staging, or immediate dispatch of transit resources.
emergency transit service response (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Response indicating changes to transit service, fares, and/or restrictions that will be made and status of transit resources to be deployed to support emergency response and/or evacuation.
equipment maintenance request (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Identification of field equipment requiring repair and known information about the associated faults.
equipment maintenance status (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Current status of field equipment maintenance actions.
evacuation information (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Evacuation instructions and information including evacuation zones, evacuation times, and reentry times.
incident information for public (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Report of current desensitized incident information prepared for public dissemination.
incident response status (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Status of the current incident response including a summary of incident status and its impact on the transportation system, traffic management strategies implemented at the site (e.g., closures, diversions, traffic signal control overrides), and current and planned response activities.
logged vehicle routes (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Anticipated route information for guided vehicles, special vehicles (e.g., oversize vehicles) or groups of vehicles (e.g., governor's motorcade) that may require changes in traffic control strategy.
maint and constr work plans (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Future construction and maintenance work schedules and activities including anticipated closures with anticipated impact to the roadway, alternate routes, anticipated delays, closure times, and durations.
road network conditions (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Current and forecasted traffic information, road and weather conditions, and other road network status. Either raw data, processed data, or some combination of both may be provided by this flow. Information on diversions and alternate routes, closures, and special traffic restrictions (lane/shoulder use, weight restrictions, width restrictions, HOV requirements) in effect is included.
road weather information (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Road conditions and weather information that are made available by road maintenance operations to other transportation system operators.
roadway maintenance status (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Summary of maintenance fleet operations affecting the road network. This includes the status of winter maintenance (snow plow schedule and current status).
threat information (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Threats regarding transportation infrastructure, facilities, or systems detected by a variety of methods (sensors, surveillance, threat analysis of advisories from outside agencies, etc.
traffic control priority request (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Request for signal priority at one or more intersections along a particular route.
traffic control priority status (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Status of signal priority request functions at the roadside (e.g., enabled or disabled).
transit emergency data (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Initial notification of transit emergency at a transit stop or on transit vehicles and further coordination as additional details become available and the response is coordinated.
transit probe data (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Aggregate probe data derived from tracking transit vehicles. Data collected could include transit vehicle speeds and travel times for a given link or collection of links.
transit system data (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Current transit system operations information indicating current transit routes, the level of service on each route, and the progress of individual vehicles along their routes for use in forecasting demand and estimating current transportation network performance.
transit system status assessment (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Assessment of damage sustained by the public transportation system including location and extent of the damage, current operational status including an estimate of remaining capacity and necessary restrictions, and time frame for repair and recovery.
transportation operational strategies (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Operational strategies for each operating agency in a transportation corridor, downtown area, or other travel–impacted area, providing an integrated operations strategy for the freeways, tollways, arterials, transit services, parking facilities, and other transportation–related facilities in the area. These strategies can include dynamic adjustments to transit fares and tolls, parking fees and restrictions, dynamic lane restriction changes, and other active demand management strategies.
transportation system status (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Current status and condition of transportation infrastructure (e.g., tunnels, bridges, interchanges, TMC offices, maintenance facilities). In case of disaster or major incident, this flow provides an assessment of damage sustained by the surface transportation system including location and extent of the damage, estimate of remaining capacity and necessary restrictions, and time frame for repair and recovery.
work plan feedback (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Comments and suggested changes to proposed construction and maintenance work schedules and activities. This information influences work plan schedules so that they minimize impact to other system operations and the overall transportation system.
work zone information (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards
Summary of maintenance and construction work zone activities affecting the road network including the nature of the maintenance or construction activity, location, impact to the roadway, expected time(s) and duration of impact, anticipated delays, alternate routes, and suggested speed limits. This information may be augmented with images that provide a visual indication of current work zone status and traffic impacts.
