THE USE OF COMPUTERS FOR PROVIDING INFORMATION TO BUS PASSENGERS

An L.T. Working party report published in 1973 made various proposals for improving information for bus passengers. These included more detailed bus stop displays, the re-introduction of pocket timetables and, if practicable, the production of local bus maps for selected suburban centres. Providing this information on a large scale would require routine manipulation of large amounts of data and is probably beyond the scope of existing resources and is therefore a candidate for computerisation. This memorandum describes an initial investigation into what can be done and demonstrates the potential for producing bus maps and bus stop displays by computer. (A) /TRRL/
