This paper analyzes the responses from two nationwide surveys designed to obtain user information requirements for the design of advanced traveler information systems (ATIS) and commercial vehicle operations (CVO) with respect to commercial system operators (dispatchers) and commercial vehicle drivers. A total of 673 returned surveys (348 dispatcher surveys and 325 commercial driver surveys), were used in the analysis. Mathematical models were developed, using a binomial logit to predict whether the commercial driver or dispatcher would use an intelligent transportation system, and an ordered probit to estimate the importance of information (i.e. route and navigation, roadside services, personal communication and road and traffic information) to be provided by in-vehicle information systems. The results of this study provide guidelines for the design of information systems and help define informational requirements for users of ATIS/CVO.
