An Experimental Study on Real Time Bus Arrival Time Prediction with Gps Data

  title={An Experimental Study on Real Time Bus Arrival Time Prediction with Gps Data},
  author={Wei-Hua Lin and Jichuan Zeng},
Bus headway in a rural area is usually much larger than that in an urban area. Providing real-time bus arrival information could make the public transit system more user-friendly and thus enhance its competitiveness among various transportation modes. As part of an operational test for rural traveler information systems currently ongoing in Blacksburg, Virginia, an experimental study has been conducted on forecasting the arrival time of the next bus with AVL techniques.
