Real Time Passenger Information Systems would help decrease the delays in the system, and ultimately help everything run smoother and faster, with less congestion. There are still more aspects of the model that can be improved in order to obtain the most reliable estimate of exactly how drastically it would help. For instance, since all of our data has come from Go-Card information, the passengers who paid with cash instead of using a Go-Card are not included in our analysis. We will have to get an estimate for about what percentage of passengers use Go-Cards and extrapolate from there.
We will be presenting our work at the International Symposium of Transport Simulation 2016 conference in Korea and will be able to meet with experts in the field who may have further insight for us.
