AN INTERACTIVE BUS TRANSIT MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM USING CREDIT CARD FARE COLLECTION DATA (ABRIDGMENT)

This research has shown that the development of a bus transit management information system that uses data from a bus credit card fare collection system is feasible from a hardware and software standpoint. An assessment of the data available from the credit card system shows that valuable and timely ridership and revenue information, which would not be readily available otherwise, can be provided to assist in management decisions regarding changes in service, i.e., adding or abandoning service, changing service modes, changing level of service and changing fare levels and/or structure. To match the large amount of available information to the transit manager's needs, a two level form of presentation is proposed with daily indicators for monitoring transit system performance and detailed reports available on demand.
