COST ESTIMATES FOR SELECTED CALIFORNIA SMART TRAVELER OPERATIONAL TESTS. VOLUME 2. APPENDICES

The study explores the costs of telephone-based information systems which can be used to develop new types of public transportation services, and integrate these services with conventional transit. The cost estimates focus on three areas in California, and were based in large measure on data from Germany and an operational test of a 'smart bus' system in Shellharbour, New South Wales, Australia. The study also compares the costs of expanding conventional transit services to reduce traffic congestion, air pollution, and mobility problems in suburban areas. The appendix includes travel data on commuter trips, a cost-benefit analysis of German and Australian 'smart buses', operational data from the Australian test, and operational test cost estimates for three California sites.
