The Public Transport Information and Priority System, abbreviated PTIPS, is a computer-based system that brings together information about public transport entities, such as buses. Where applicable, PTIPS can also provide transport vehicles with priority at traffic signals.
PTIPS consists of a number of hardware and software components installed on-board buses which wirelessly communicate with a central set of servers. PTIPS also relies on an interface with Sydney Coordinated Adaptive Traffic System (SCATS - to provide the priority feature) and bus/route/timetable data provided by bus organisations and government authorities.
- Real-time tracking of bus location and status
- Traffic light priority for late running buses
- Bus/Timetable performance and reliability reports
- Real-time Bus arrival information for bus stops

“The real, then, is that which, sooner or later, information and reasoning would finally result in, and which is therefore independent of the vagaries of me and you. Thus, the very origin of the conception of reality shows that this conception essentially involves the notion of a COMMUNITY, without definite limits, and capable of a definite increase of knowledge.”
—Charles Sanders Peirce (18391914)
