Abrégé

A passenger's activity at the normal entry and exit points to the transit system may be recorded and linked, using a transit ticking system, along with the passenger's transit time and onward travel mode (bike hire, taxi, etc.). These records can be linked to other parameters such as the time, day of the week, season of the year, weather, and/or other such parameters. Furthermore, the passenger may use the transit ticketing system to make onward travel reservations such a bike hire or taxi. Such reservations will also be linked with the entry and exit and other parameters. The passenger's entry and exit on subsequent visits may be recorded and aggregated with past travel parameters. Thus, when a user enters the transit system, the records for that user can be used to predict how long they may be in transit, where they may exit the transit system, and what type of onward travel they may use.
