After logging in to the myAvail Passenger Information website, selecting a bus number/ID on the left Menu will center the map on that bus and display its vehicle information in a pop-up:
The Vehicle Occupancy is a percentage of the total vehicle occupancy. Total vehicle occupancy is defined in the Transit Assets Suite in the fleet card. So if you see a vehicle showing as full when there are only one or two riders, there’s a good chance the vehicle’s occupancy number is incorrect.
These values come to passenger information via GTFS. See here for more information about the standard, and a handy chart of occupancy levels.
The actual thresholds are defined below.
“Many Seats Available” = under 50% of seats are taken,
“Few Seats available” = 50-95% of seats are taken.
“Standing Room Only” = If a vehicle has standing room and the seated capacity is 80-100% full,
“Crushed” = If seated capacity is above 100% and total capacity <95%
“Full” = If total capacity is above 95%
|Empty||Less then 10% of seating cap|
|Many Seats Available||Between 10% and 50% of seating cap|
|Few Seats Available||Between 50% and 95% of seating cap|
|Standing Room Only||Greater than 80% of seating cap and standing room allowed|
|Crushed Standing Room||Greater than 100% of seating cap and greater than 95% of total cap|
