In this paper we describe the usage of a transit vehicle information system that delivers estimated departure times for a large transit fleet by way of internet-enabled mobile devices. While a number of experimental and commercial products are beginning to offer such a service this paper reports the actual usage by patrons of a large transit fleet. We(More)
The Seattle model deployment initiative has created a new technology for data sharing in an ITS environment. This technology, the ITS Backbone that uses Self Describing Data (http:/ /www.its.washington.edu/bbone/), creates a framework in which to build applications. These applications use Self Describing Data (SDD) to obtain real-time data over the Internet(More)
The wide variety of remote sensors used in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) applications (loops, probe vehicles, radar, cameras, etc.) has created a need for general methods by which data can be shared among agencies and users who own disparate computer systems. In this paper, we present a methodology that demonstrates that it is possible to create,(More)
traveler information. The initiative focuses on real-time information to help travelers make informed decisions about their travel options. The Smart Trek project has brought about a variety of real-time transit information applications. One of these is MyBus, which makes departure predictions and delivers traveler information to Web browsers and cell(More)
In past work we described a system of components that are used to construct transit traveler information applications. In this paper we describe an ongoing project that uses the same component architecture to combine maps, schedules, and AVL information from four transit agencies. The result is a set of web applications suitable for both transit management(More)
