Advanced Public Transportation Systems (APTS) are a subset of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). Bus Dispatch Systems (BDS) are importatnt components of APTS. Based on the Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) technology, the BDS generates exception reports for buses not adhering to their schedule. A Transit Time Internet Access System (TTIA) is under development. It currently reports bus schedule times and bus arrival times for time points (abbreviate as TP) along routes. The objective of a subsequent version of the TTIA is to provide user with schedule time at the bus stop level. This a report on progress to estimate stop level schedules for the use in TTIA.
