|Abstract: ||Enhancing the bus experience through improved information provision is a
key element of the UK Government’s transport policy as stated in ‘A New
Deal for Transport: Better for Everyone’ (DETR, 1998). There are several
ways of doing this, but one in particular - Real Time Passenger Information
(RTPI) – has often been seen by local authorities as the way forward. RTPI is
perceived to reassure passengers waiting for a bus by reducing the uncertainty
of when (and even whether) the bus will arrive, thus encouraging patronage
and benefiting the public transport operator through increased revenue and the
local authority, by promoting social inclusion and achieving a modal shift.
RTPI also provides an important tool for operators by allowing them to
monitor services and refine their schedules.|
