A PRELIMINARY SYSTEMS DESIGN FOR A MULTI-PURPOSE TRANSIT PLANNING AND MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM

The report presents a preliminary systems design for a multi-purpose transit planning and management information system. It conceptualizes two such information systems: one for the automation of transit schedule data for the production of scheduling related reports, and the other for the automation of transit schedule data and street network data for a general transit information system. While the former system is designed to produce the types of reports currently manually produced and in use by the transit industry, the latter system is intended to provide an automated data base for the planning and marketing of transit services. The purpose of the report is to provide transit properties and others with an efficient file structure for organizing schedule data for the production of various types of output based on the concept of random access search.
