The objective of Interactive Transit Station Information System (ITSIS) is to better inform transit travelers during their trips and to enable dynamic transit operations to better serve travelers. The ultimate goal is to make transit more friendly and attractive to the traveling population such that transit will become a viable choice for travel and an integrated part of the solution for congestion relief. This report documents a research effort to develop and test a ITSIS prototype that uses Connected Vehicle technologies to enable the real-time interaction between passengers and transit systems at bus stations. The reports summarizes the findings from passenger surveys conducted through field testing at two transit stops.
