A SYSTEM FOR PRESENTING INFORMATIONS OF BUS ROUTES

It is important not only for bus authorities but also for bus passengers that bus routes are easily found and used. Progress has been made in bus location systems regarding the intelligence of bus transportation on the road, but information is only available to passengers at bus stops. In order to increase the usefulness of these systems, it is important to establish a system for displaying and presenting bus route information regardless of passenger location. The proposed system runs on a personal computer and each passenger can get bus operation information at home. Data needed for the system include bus routes, names of bus stops, and departure times. These data are deposited on a personal computer at home or are at a data center for users who can access it. Passengers can obtain suitable bus route information among many bus routes based on fastest time, cheapest route, or easiest route. Bus departure times are to be connected to the bus location system. When passengers access these data via the computer network, the system becomes useful to bus users at home.
