Abstract: The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) faces a number of challenges of all kinds in its attempts to gain and keep riders. But most important is finding ways to serve and satisfy its customers. One new way of achieving this is trying to be more responsive to its riders' needs by implementing a Bus Service Management System. This communication system will provide more information to passengers, and make service more consistent and reliable.
