This paper summarizes existing systems and research on information transport services, and proposes a hypothetic scenario for future travellers using public transport. Increased distributed intelligence in pervasive mobile smart devices and in sensor networks in public transport vehicles is enabling a new approach for enhancing the experience of public transport customers. Such environment could be modelled through a distributed multi-agent service system. This paper presents advanced… 

How to Encourage the Use of Public Transport? A Multiservice Approach Based on Mobile Technologies

This multiservice approach may represent a step towards a sustainable mobility, while improving the image and efficiency of Public Transport Operators (PTOs), boosting local businesses loyalty and sales and bringing convenience, better service quality and monetary savings to customers.

How to Predict Journey Destination for Supporting Contextual Intelligent Information Services?

An adaptation of the Top-K algorithm is proposed for predicting journey destination, applied to different scenarios in public transport, and the performance and efficiency are analysed and compared to a decision tree classifier.

Service interactions modeling for improved management of public transport systems

The proposed approach fosters the role of service interaction modeling in supporting a public transport service system to dynamically adapt its operational capabilities in delivering good public transport services, as more or less quantifiable changes can affect service delivery over time.

A user collaboration model for urban passenger transport

Towards a Conceptual Framework for Classifying Visualisations of Data from Urban Mobility Services

This work proposes a classification for visualisations of urban mobility data according to their context of use and their characteristics, and draws conclusions that are expected to guide researchers and practitioners searching for adequate ways to visually represent their data.

Design Principles for Interactive Pervasive Environments − Lessons from Urban Mobility

An application in the domain of urban mobility is described and a set of design principles is identified that aim at addressing some of these issues.

Regularity of Public Transport Usage: A Case Study of Bus Rides in Lisbon, Portugal

This paper presents an analysis of regularity in public transport usage based on a largescale bus transportation data of Lisbon, Portugal. By exploring the combined information from the bus boarding



Using Social Networks for Exchanging Valuable Real Time Public Transport Information among Travellers

A model for cooperative exchanges of information is introduced and a valuation system for the information provided and obtained is proposed, which would achieve a real transactional value and present a new electronic commerce paradigm.

A Proposal for a Mobile Ticketing Solution for Metropolitan Area of Oporto Public Transport

This paper intends to propose a mobile payment system to be implemented in the Public Transport of Metropolitan Area of Oporto, and suggests that users considered the system extremely useful, since it is more convenient than traditional systems, improving the travelling process and experience.

Cloud2Bubble: enhancing quality of experience in mobile cloud computing settings

A user-centric framework that addresses the disconnection between two streams that flow continuously between user and cloud-based systems, and aims at leveraging existing technology, such as environment sensors and personal devices, to aggregate localised user-related data into the cloud.

A Service Science and Engineering Approach to Public Information Services in Exceptional Situations - Examples from Transport

ITC based information services are widely used for providing or accessing information on a daily basis. In exceptional or emergency situations relevant information could be sent to citizens in order

Exploring Services Science

Starting from the comparative analysis of some relevant generic service models reported in the literature, the paper raises some specific questions regarding the research effort in this area and deduces a generic model of a service process lifecycle, including part of the ISPAR states.
