71 APPENDIX D AGENCIES AND AUTOMATIC PASSENGER COUNTER MANUFACTURERS Table D1 lists transit agencies with automatic passenger counter (APC) systems, the size of the agency as measured by the number of peak vehicles in service, and the percentage of vehicles equipped with APCs, hardware supplier, software supplier, and procurement process. All information except for agency size is taken directly from survey responses. National Transit Database 2006 data were used to determine system size: Small agencies have fewer than 250 peak vehicles, medium agencies have between 250 and 1,000, and large agencies have more than 1,000.
