A private contractor used an Internet server to interface with the AZTech server and download traffic information and transit schedules to 28 kiosks located at commercial and public locations throughout Phoenix. The kiosk units were equipped with a touch-screen user interface, an audio system, and built-in printers. The kiosk software was similar to web browsers, and the traveler information provided was updated remotely using a dial-up Internet connection.
The total start-up cost for the system was approximately $459,732. The cost for hardware and enclosures (25 indoor and 3 outdoor kiosks) was approximately $233,350, and the cost for software, system development, and project management was approximately $109,100. Another $46,200 was required for shipping, installation, and start-up.
Annual operation and maintenance costs were approximately $153,519. This included the shared cost of the AZTech server.
