GERMAN 'SMART BUS' SYSTEMS. POTENTIAL FOR APPLICATION IN PORTLAND, OREGON. VOLUME 2. APPENDICES

The study explores how several computer assisted 'smart bus' systems have developed in Germany, and how these systems might be applicable in the United States. The study uses Portland, Oregon as a possible demonstration site. The volume includes appendix material expanding on the content of the main technical report. The first appendix describes the operation of a videotex-enhanced flexible operations command and control system, including the availability of a variety of interactive services available through it. The second appendix presents a summary of the costs to conduct a one-year operational test of such a system in Shellharbour, Australia. The final appendix presents a discussion draft of the strategic plan for the TRI-MET transit system serving Portland.
