Abstract

In Brazil, Public Bus Transportation (PBT) responds for the most part of displacements. However, due to low level of services provided by bus operators and the increase of informal/non-regulated transportation, there has been a sharp decrease on demand. In this context, planning agencies need now to focus on efforts towards comprehension and development of strategies to satisfy various necessities of PBT's users. As a preliminary step in this direction, this work introduces the application of Neural Networks (NN) associated to a Geographical Information System (GIS) in order to process the modelling of user's preferences in P
