Abstract:
We present BusTr, a machine-learned model for translating road, traffic forecasts into predictions of bus delays, used by Google Maps, to serve the majority of the world’s public transit systems where no official real-time bus tracking is provided. We demonstrate that our neural sequence model improves over DeepTTE, the state-of-the-art baseline, both in performance (,−,30%, MAPE) and training stability. We also demonstrate significant generalization gains over simpler, models, evaluated on longitudinal data to cope with a constantly evolving world.
