PTIPS Mark II - An Enhanced and Powerful Public Transport Information and Priority System

The Public Transport Information and Priority System, PTIPS, started as a research and development project conducted by the Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) of NSW, and culminated in the development of a prototype presented at the 8th ITS World Congress in Sydney, Australia, 2001 (1,2). Since then, PTIPS has undergone a robust development phase directed at delivering a mature product driven by clear requirements based on the real needs of transit policy makers and transit operators in NSW. An interim version of the system has been in operation in Sydney since 2006 on two strategic bus corridors. This paper presents a description of the main areas that are either new additions to the system presented in 2001 or powerful enhancements to features that existed then.
