SYNOPSIS

Earlier smart city investments sometimes realise further potential when combined with subsequent projects. One example of this is the Transit Signal Priority (TSP) via Public Transport Information and Priority System (PTIPS), which provides priority for delayed buses in the New South Wales public transport network. The system relies on earlier Smart Cities oriented technology including actuated signals (SCATS), on-board global positioning systems (GPS) and occupancy data from Opal cards to extend green time for buses that are running late.

This presentation discusses the data pipeline development, and benefits validation processes of the TSP request system, using open data generated by legacy investments like SCATS, GPS and Opal card. The work underscores the benefits of Smart Transport and Open Data. We test the hypothesis that the reduction in delay is correlated with the number of signalised intersections between bus stops when controlling for the total number of intersections, the distance between stops, and the magnitude of delays.

In addition to validating the PTIP STSP, this research also serves to motivate legacy investments that might enable the next generation of Smart Cities Projects. This validation has bearing on future Smart Cities project appraisals in terms of direct advantages and quantifying the wider economic benefits.
