Title Qualitative Analysis of Bus Simulator Training on Transit Incidents - A Case Study in Florida.
Publication Date Jun 2013
Media Count 59p
Personal Author A. Reep L. Staes V. Perk
Abstract The purpose of the research was to track and observe three Florida public transit agencies as they incorporated and integrated computer-based transit bus simulators into their existing bus operator training programs. In addition to the three Florida case study agencies, four transit agencies outside Florida were contacted and interviewed on their experiences with the use of bus simulators in their operator training programs. The Research Team asked agencies to provide any relevant data they may have collected to track the performance of the simulator training to allow for a more robust discussion of safety improvements that may have resulted. The report also provides insight from the transit agencies' perspectives on how their simulators are utilized, and offers important perspective on lessons learned and best and model practices.
