The FTA developed a series of documents promoting ITS technologies. Information is drawn from interviews with various transit agency employees and consultants who have implemented the technology, about its benefits. This document covers the benefits of Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) for transit agencies in Michigan, Oregon, Wisconsin, and Washington. The lessons address how the installation and use of Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) technology can greatly enhance transit agency performance. Operations and emergency response are enhanced, operational data can be captured to improve the system, dispatchers know more about conditions in the street, and customer service is improved.
