Abstract

The Internet and the World Wide Web are used for a wide variety of transportation applications. Most of these applications use static HTML documents. However, outside of transportation, considerably more attention is being given to dynamic content and XML. A way in which these technologies can be used to provide transit timetable information on the web is explored. Specifically, the transit timetable system, an online interactive transit timetable information exchange and administration system that uses Java server pages and the transit timetable markup language, is described.
