    Advanced Rural Transportation & Information Coordination (ARTIC)
     
The Advanced Rural Transportation and Information Coordination (ARTIC) Operational Test combines the dispatching functions of four agencies within the Minnesota Arrowhead Region. In combining the dispatching functions of these agencies, ARTIC employs vehicle location capabilities and central software designed to assist in the intake and successful prosecution of demands made of the agencies. The project improves interagency communication and service efficiency; provides enhanced services to a common constituency; and serves as a model for other implementations at the local and national level.
