THE GENERATION OF INTEGRATED PUBLIC TRANSPORT TRAVEL INFORMATION BY COMPUTER

The existing procedures utilized by travel enquiry clerks, when answering inquiries on journeys involving interchange, are often cumbersome and sometimes slow. The use of a computer to compile travel information would thus appear to be of benefit to travellers and public transport operators alike by providing the facilities for quicker, more accurate and consistent responses to inquirers. The practicability of producing computer software that would generate schedules of trip-opportunities from the public transport timetables was investigated by the Transport and Road Research Laboratory. The Report describes the software developed, the various options that may be adopted in it, its input and its output. The software has a number of other applications of interest to local authorities, which are also described. (Copyright (c) Crown Copyright 1980.)
