Evaluation of Mobile Application's Impact on Bus Dwell Times In Reserve

The mobile application of NJ TRANSIT has the potential to expedite vehicle dwell times by simplifying the fare payment process at bus stops. Therefore, NJ TRANSIT would like to evaluate the impact of the mobile application on bus dwell times as compared to traditional fare media. This evaluation can use automatically collected data (such as farebox records or vehicle location data) and/or field work to record dwell times. As part of the project, NJ TRANSIT is also interested in understanding whether changes in vehicle dwell times resulting from the mobile application can improve overall bus operations.
