Cambridge Systematics, Minn. Metro Transit partner to improve next bus arrival time predictions

Cambridge Systematics (CS) was selected by Minneapolis’ Metro Transit to participate in a pilot program to evaluate approaches and technologies to improve the agency’s bus arrival time predictions based on current information about vehicle location, traffic conditions, weather, and other relevant factors.

The CS team is building a real-time predictions solution for Metro Transit using the open-source software, TheTransitClock. To improve the accuracy of predicted arrival times, the CS team’s solution employs a Kalman Filter, an adaptive algorithm that recognizes unusual conditions, like abnormal traffic congestion and weather events, and draws on the most relevant historical and real-time data to improve the quality of its arrival time predictions by more accurately estimating vehicle travel times and dwell times (periods when the bus is at a stop, loading and unloading passengers).
