Abstract

Over the last 10 years, VSCS (Vehicle Scheduling and Control Systems) have demonstrated their ability to decrease the cost of public transport and to improve its efficiency and attractiveness for all those involved; local authorities, operators, drivers and passengers. The BARTOC (Bus Advanced Real Time Operational Control) project took account of current experience of existing VSCS and their perceived advantages, together with previous European studies on this topic, in order to define and specify a new generation of more efficient, less expensive VSCS, including new architecture guidelines and subsystems.
