The objective of the Houston Smart Commuter project is to assess the potential for encouraging greater utilization of high-occupancy commute modes (e.g., buses, carpools, and vanpools) by applying innovative approaches using advanced technologies to provide information. It is hypothesized that commuters who have quick and easy access to relevant, accurate, and timely information on existing traffic conditions, bus routes and schedules, and instant carpool matching services will be more likely to use public transportation and other high occupancy commute modes. It is further anticipated that individuals may also alter their time of travel or travel route, based on this information.
