  • Abstract:
    Advanced Public Transportation Systems, or APTS, are advanced navigation and communication technologies applied to all aspects of public transportation system operations. APTS provides the technology for transportation agencies to make timely transit information available to the passenger and to improve the convenience, reliability and safety of public transportation service. For example, smart cards, telecommunications, and other electronic technologies that have the potential to improve the efficiency and appeal of public transportation are being tested at various locations throughout the U.S. The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) created the Advanced Public Transportation Systems (APTS) Program as part of the U.S. DOT initiative in Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS). IVHS is a tool to enhance transportation mobility, energy efficiency, environmental protection and safety. Most IVHS systems are designed for the automobile driver and not the transit rider. The APTS program addresses this imbalance by developing IVHS systems that will improve the public transit option. 6 p.
