Challenges

Improving Services

smiling bus passengersYou want to improve the quality of public transport by ensuring connectivity between services. However, static schedules that do not account for real-world issues such as late running or separate planning for different modes of transport can cause commuters to miss connecting services. This gives public transport a poor reputation and negatively impacts ridership over time.

Your customers see all modes of public transport as parts of a single network. Using intelligent transport systems (ITS), you can coordinate and monitor all public transport vehicles in real time. You can ensure services complement each other and passenger information flows freely from vehicles to the control centre to commuters.

You can also make public transport more attractive by improving accessibility and adding services. However, determining the most cost-effective and efficient option can be difficult:

  • Is it better to introduce more bus services, or would feeder buses to the train station be more suitable?
  • Would a new bus rapid transit system have better return on investment than extending the tram network?

Using a transport-specific planning and scheduling solution that can incorporate a multitude of factors will help you create what-if scenarios, calculate expected costs and build a business case for change more easily.
