Multi-Modal Traveler Information
This project is a real-time demonstration of multi-modal, multi-agency traveler information conducted over a three-county region.
These pages demonstrate the viability of creating traveler information systems that span four agencies, (Sound Transit, Pierce Transit, Community Transit, and Metro King County Transit) and two vehicle types (transit buses and Sounder Train service) as well as two types of automatic vehicle location systems (GPS and signpost-assisted dead reckoning).
The Busview and MyBus programs have been enhanced to now include information from all the agencies listed above. The multi-modal versions can be reached by links listed below. Please be sure you are not using the 1.3 Java Virtual machine as your Java Plugin for your browser.
