Title: A data mining approach for trip time prediction in mass transit companies
Issue Date: 2005
Abstract: In this paper we discuss how trip time prediction can beuseful for operational optimization in mass transit companies and howdata mining techniques can be used to improve results. Firstly, we an-alyze which departments need trip time prediction and when. Secondly,we review related work and thirdly we present the analysis of trip timeover a particular path. We proceed by presenting experimental resultsconducted on real data with the forecasting techniques we found mostadequate, and conclude by discussing guidelines for future work.
