Given the potential of transit-bus automation, it is critical to evaluate the benefits and challenges from early implementations. A well-designed evaluation can quantify such societal benefits as improving travel time, increasing mobility, and raising transit ridership. This guide aims to assist transit stakeholders with designing and implementing evaluations of automated transit-bus programs. In designing evaluations, transit agencies and other stakeholders should identify program goals and audiences affected by the technology; develop a logic model that maps project inputs, activities, and outcomes; choose an appropriate evaluation design; and collect and analyze data on key performance indicators related to their program goals.
