Abstract This report presents the results of a study on the deployment, use, and effect of real-time traveler information (TI) systems.

It also provides several key outputs to be used by stakeholders: (a) survey/interviews of agency representatives, (b) surveys and focus groups with travelers to better understand the publics perception/use of TI, (c) database of survey responses, (d) comparative analysis of agency and public perceptions, (e) recommendations of methods for assessing TI, including a toolbox of low-cost approaches, (f) guidance for features of an ideal TI system, (g) discussion of future TI, including cutting edge technologies.
