Transit Transportation Operations Data Collection (Equipment Packages*)This equipment package collects real-time information on the state of the regional transportation system for operational use by the center. It includes communication and data processing capabilities that provide real-time access to regional transportation information that is stored in a regional repository. This equipment package establishes communications with the repository, requests or subscribes to information relevant to the center, receives and processes the information, and then distributes the information to other equipment packages and the system operator for use. Although request and subscription flows are not explicitly included in the National ITS Architecture, interactive data services are supported by this equipment package.
