2017 - 2021 Transporation Improvement Program Amendment #51
Trapeze Operations Suite – Delete Project
Public comments will be received through May 31, 2019
The Greater Buffalo-Niagara Regional Transportation Council (GBNRTC), the Metropolitan Planning Organization for Erie and Niagara Counties, is proposing to amend the 2017-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) by removing one (1) project.
Project Identification Number (PIN) 5824.64 Trapeze Operations Suite
This project provided $200K NYSDOT Accelerated Transit Capital (ATC) funding for an upgraded software module to enhance scheduling, dispatching, and other workforce-related matters.
Early project development identified higher than anticipated resources to deliver the complete project, creating an overall funding shortfall. Both unfunded hardware and software prerequisite upgrades did not align with Metro’s overall program prioritization. Therefore, funds will be transferred to PIN 582463 Bus Fare Collection Project, a significant ongoing project that is currently experiencing scope realignment and opportunities for additional funding needs.
Fiscal constraint is maintained.
