Re-designing bus networks: changing routes and timetables dynamically
Can you predict ridership? Can you optimise routes and trips to better meet demand? Can you create demand responsive bus routes? What difference would it make for riders and for the length of their mass transportation commutes? What are the underlying technologies and service ideas that support this?
