Frequently Asked Questions about BT's TIGGER Grant

What does TIGGER mean? Transit Investment in Greenhouse Gas and Energy Reduction. The program was developed by the Federal Transit Administration for public transportation agencies to implement new strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and/or reduce energy use within transit operations. For more information about the TIGGER program, please visit: http://www.fta.dot.gov/12351_11424.html

What is the goal of TIGGER? We hope to be reduce greenhouse gas emissions by improving routing and scheduling efficiency. We plan to accomplish this using various technologies, which we tested in spring 2014. We hope that we will be able to see where the most demand is and send buses to those stops, and not service stops that are not being used.

What are the next steps in the "Dynamic Routing and Scheduling Study project? A survey was sent out to gauge VT opinion about the various technologies we may test. The beta version of the app was launched in January 2014, with the full version launched in February 2014.
