Before-and-After Analysis of the San Antonio TransGuide System

Summary Information

The first phase of the San Antonio TransGuide System became operational on July 26, 1995 and included 26 miles of downtown freeway. This paper documents the impact of the system on crashes and incident response times during the first five months of operation and reports the findings of a survey investigation into driver response to the TransGuide system.


Survey results reported in the paper indicate improvements in driver confidence with the traveler information available to them after the implementation of TransGuide. Periodic surveys taken after implementation indicated that driver response to posted instructions improved from 33 percent just after implementation to 80 percent at the time of the report.
