The report is concerned with the computerization of public transportation information center. The costs and benefits of such a system are outlined and investigated. The computerized system is compared to the manual system and the capabilities and limitations of the manual system are explored. Four computer systems were chosen for evaluation in a hypothetical information center. The economic analysis of the four systems includes a buy/lease study based on multiple estimated system lines as well as on multiple capitalization factors. The report also examines the additional services which computers can provide. Certain limitations inherent to the computerized system are also discussed.
