Interactive Bus Route Map

Highways Forecasting and Analytical Services (HFAS) were commissioned by Network Performance within Transport for Greater Manchester to design and build a browser based interactive bus route map.

The interactive map allows TfGM staff to display all routes or select and display individual routes. The map background changes from a general map to an A-Z style as users zoom in and out. Clicking on the line of any route(s) will display a list of the services (and their frequencies and operators) that pass that location. On some busy roads the list can be long and there is the option of saving it to a file that can be opened in Excel.

The routes represent the culmination of a considerable programme of work which involved automatically building and then checking some 4100 routes.
