Transit smart card automated fare collection systems are becoming increasingly prevalent in cities across the world. Trajectory reconstruction from smart card data includes constructing passenger trajectories or flows (Itoh et al., 2013; Yang et al., 2013; Yuan et al., 2013) or train trajectory reconstruction through regression analysis (Sun et al., 2012). It appears that no work has been done so far to reconstruct the detail trajectories of bus vehicles from these data. In this work, bus vehicle trajectories have been (approximately) reconstructed from a full day of smart card transactions in Singapore, from a mid-April Wednesday, 2013. The trajectories were recorded in a format compliant with the output from the agent-based simulation system, MATSim (www.matsim.org), using the specifications developed by (Rieser, 2010). This makes visualisation and analysis possible in compliant software, such as Senozon Via (http://senozon.com/products/via). A significant application of the resulting trajectory data is for the construction of realistic meta-models of travel time between transit stops during the course of the day in a fast pseudo-simulation (Fourie et al., 2013), as well as to route agents using realistic travel times in a dynamic transit router (Ordóñez Medina and Erath, 2013) Show more
