New technologies, especially automatic vehicle location (AVL) systems, provide much more real-time information on bus locations than had previously been available. Theoretically, availability of this information can be expected to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of on-street bus operations management.
The TRB Transit Cooperative Research Program's TCRP Synthesis 166: On-Street Bus Operations Management provides an overview of the current practices in real-time management of street operations at North American transit agencies.
