Final report for MOU 37 Automated Guidance of transit buses in urban areas will introduce challenges in terms of maintaining acceptable levels of service to patrons while not compromising system safety. In this report, we present the findings from conducting both an extensive literature review and field observations of the operation of transit buses in an urban setting. The scope of the research conducted under MOU 37 is limited to reporting on the automated docking of buses, although many other safety-related services involving automation exist or have been proposed.
