Topic of the practice

Monitoring of fleets of public transport with a control centre

Good Practice Information

The objective is to monitor and check the public transport management to optimize transports offered to the users, in order to improve service reliability (quality supplied) and its scheduling. The project aimed at the optimization of the scheduling of the whole fleet, the reduction of cost, traffic light prioritization and the diagnostics of the vehicles and improved road safety.
The ITS application was developed for monitoring of fleets of public transport with a control centre. An info-mobility system was implemented in order to disseminate real time information about local public transportation services throughout the Region by implementation of an AVL/AVM control centre.

Evidence of success

In total, 810 on board devices were installed covering 70% of the running bus fleet, and 231 electronic bus stops were built. This allowed improving the reliability of the services, which increased the use of public transport. More efficiency in the transport system and in the managing of the journeys and lines by an optimization of the services offered to the users could be reached
