An Examination of the Public Transport Information Requirements of Users

This paper examines the provision of public transportation information to passengers in Dublin, Ireland. It looks at both current and potential methods of accessing information, and focuses on the implementation of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) applications. Four stages of a passenger's transportation journey are defined: 1) pre-trip to destination, 2) at-stop, 3) onboard, and 4) pre-trip to origin. A web-based survey is used to examine each of these stages and in what format the information is required at each stage. Focus is on the respondents' stated preferences for public transportation information and not revealed preferences. Included in the survey are results of passengers' opinions regarding the different formats in which information is provided, including call centers, mobile phones, the Internet, and paper-based methods.
