Real-time passenger information answers a critical question—Where’s my bus? Only the four Upstate NY regional transportation authorities offer this service on a system-wide basis. Other small urban and rural fixed-route and demand response systems are considering similar projects.
Joshua Garner will discuss the benefits, costs and lessons of deploying this service, for fixed-route and demand response services By CENTRO (Syracuse/Utica).
Further, Jerry Emanuel will discuss how Google Transit and GTFS can be used by smaller transit agencies to put their systems online using tools provided by National RTAP.
