Abstract The aim of this research is to investigate the application of Information and Communication technology (ICT) in optimization of Public Transportation Systems (PTS), particularly in regard to the productivity and performance enhancement methods. In doing so, this research will ultimately develop a number of PTS enhancement methods to further improve the productivity and performance of such assets. Systematically, while ICT includes all the types of communication devices and systems, PTS can be defined as specific systems that are used to transport the public and are owned by governments. Although, some PTS may be operated by private contractors, generally their assets such as trains, buses and so on, belong to governments. Nevertheless, such infrastructure requires comprehensive and effective ICT to ensure that it operates efficiently. Although, the use of ICT for analogous assets has many advantages such as reduced incident response time; it also possesses disadvantages including increased costs. Accordingly, to further understand and balance such issues, Sydney Metro was examined as the basis of a case study. The analysis of the Sydney Metro verified that, the inclusion of ICT is central in the optimization of PTS, thus leading to its superior productivity and performance.
