Chap 7 presents a comparative analysis of various tools useful in policy making. Select two tools described in chap 7 from different categories, and describe how these tools could be used to develop policy for optimizing bus and local train schedules to minimize energy use and passenger wait times in a SmartCity environment.  

To complete this assignment, you must do the following:

A) Create a new thread. As indicated above, select two tools described in chapter 7 from different categories, and describe how these tools could be used to develop policy for optimizing bus and local train schedules to minimize energy use and passenger wait times in a SmartCity environment. 

B) Select AT LEAST 3 other and post substantive comments on those threads. Your comments should extend the conversation started with the thread.

ALL original posts must be research-based and comments must be substantive. (I'm looking for about a paragraph – not just "I agree.")
