An innovative passenger routing information system for public transit lines has been developed. Named PARIS (Passenger Routing Information System), the system provides detailed information on optimal point-to-point itineraries in a scheduled transit system quickly enough to produce cost savings as well as passenger benefits. PARIS uses transit system data including, headway sheets (times), routings, incremental distances between stops, fare zones, landmark information and transfer data. The system features an itinerary defined by the arrival time, route numbers and direction of each bus; arrival and departure times and location of each transfer point along the route, arrival time at the destination, total elapsed time, and fare. Average processing time does not exceed five seconds for a bus system of up to 15,000 stops.
