London Bus Services Limited (LBSL) operates the world‘s largest public intermodal transport control system (ITCS). This system can show the dispatcher exactly what is happening throughout the entire network, which includes more than 770 routes, at a glance.
The current location of any bus can be determined at any time through various information screens. This allows more efficient dispatch of vehicles and helps to transport over 6 million passengers quickly and safely to their destination every day.
The iBus project with its data and voice connections makes bus operations more reliable and provides precise information at bus stops. The new ITCS solution has enhanced the efficiency of operations and resulted in additional savings.
Transport for London (TfL) works with 15 transport service providers. LBSL is responsible for the entire ITCS system and its operation and monitoring.
