Traffic Information release is an important part of ITS system. Bus arrive time prediction (BATP) is one of key and difficult site in that system which can provide comprehensive bus information service as well as improve traffic environment. In this article, we take historical data as a measurement method in estimating operation stability, coupling with real time GPS data (which will be handled in KFM), to release ultimate error weighted result generated from these two kinds of predictions. Simulated results prove the max error time for passenger waiting time prediction is limited within 1 min. This method has a better veracity as well as efficient which makes it easier for realization and promotion.
