Based on data gathered from the United States energy, it is clear that 50% of commuters do not use public transport to work, but rather their vehicles. That shows the number of cars on the road and how it can cause traffic. However, traffic can be mitigated through people utilizing public transit services (Tan, Steinbach, Karpatne, & Kumar, 2019). And therefore, public transit services must be improved by reducing costs and improving service quality to increase their utility and attract more people in using public transport to avoid them using their vehicles.
Transit data collection is essential for efficient traffic data collection in specific areas. However, transit data collection is still difficult due to different systems of data collection which are not designed for transit performance monitoring. Also, each data collection domain requires skilled personnel to gather quality data. To remove data barriers, transit data collection should be done online to enable connections and interoperability among transit data sets.
