Abstract

For a public transport service to be used, the public must know where and when the service is provided. This simple maxim has often proved to be a non-trivial consideration for operators and customers alike. This chapter explores the importance of market information to consumers and assesses the role of high-quality information as a key enabler of successful transport service provision. A recurring theme is the critical role of smart technology.
