- Full Report:
This is an e-supplement to GAO-16-638. It presents the results of GAO's survey of small urban and rural transit providers on their use of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). In order to learn about transit providers' use of ITS and perspectives on the costs, benefits, and challenges associated with ITS, we conducted a web-based survey by selecting a stratified random sample of 312 transit providers using reporting year 2013 data from the Federal Transit Administration's National Transit Database. The results of the survey can be generalized to the population of 314 transit providers that serve small urban areas and 582 transit providers with more than 10 vehicles that serve rural areas, and are presented as estimates with 95 percent confidence intervals within plus or minus 10 percentage points, unless otherwise noted. We obtained completed questionnaires from 233 respondents, or about a 75 percent response rate.
