Poster Session 1393

1393 - Bus System Operations, Technology, and Applications, Part 2 (Part 1, Session 1375)

Thursday, January 28 1:00 PM- 2:30 PM ET
Chun-Hung Peter Chen, Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA)
Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Bus Transit Systems (AP050)

This session includes intelligent transportation systems, transit signal priority, as well as modeling and optimization for bus operation, design, and application. Intelligent transportation systems are making the bus transit system operation smarter and more efficient. Many transit agencies have adopted a number of different intelligent transportation systems and technology in order to enhance and/or supplement their transit services to the public. Audiences who are interested in bus transit operations, intelligent transportation systems, and technology are welcome to join this session.
