Abstract

Graphical Information Systems (GIS) offer transit management a powerful tool to increase information availability and improve control decision-making. As referred to in this paper, GIS is a computer-based, interactive information system offering the user a graphical interface to data input, manipulation, and output functions. This paper reports on work in progress at Princeton University in developing a prototype GIS for New Jersey Transit Bus Operations (NJTBO) to support bus route monitoring and evaluation. This paper has two primary purposes: 1. to characterize those decision contexts for which GIS offer an appropriate technology for increasing decisionmaking effectiveness and efficiency; and 2. to illustrate the potential impact of the GIS on decisionmaking with an example from NJTBO.
