Information Technology for Public Transport (ITxPT)

Find out how ITxPT open standards allow different public transport systems to easily interface with each other to reduce testing, development time, and costs.

Information Technology for Public Transport (ITxPT)

Open standards are a key tool that ensures different systems can easily interface with each other. Information Technology for Public Transport (ITxPT) is just such a standard that is now becoming widely adopted amongst transport authorities and operators. 

Created specifically to address the needs of the public transport industry, ITxPT is a way to share resources and upgrade devices for vehicles, without being locked into a single supplier. ITxPT, where Trapeze Group is a Principal Member, results in easier testing, less development, and lower costs, as well as an easier path for system migration. ITxPT continues to evolve with new versions and upcoming specifications such as electric vehicles, demand-responsive transport, and more.

David Panter, one of Trapeze’s Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) experts, explains why ITxPT is becoming widely adopted across the public transport industry.
