The advent of smart phones and other nomadic or in-vehicle devices (eg, satnav) are making it easier for the traveller to be informed in real-time about the travel conditions on the roads (congestion, road works, travel times) and in public transport (bus arrival time). From the local authority perspective, real-time information is a useful tool to influence traveller behaviour, e.g. steering vehicular traffic on the main road network through VSM, real-time bus departure times (at bus stops and through other interfaces such as smart phones) to make bus travel a more attractive option.
