Mobility Measure

PT Traveller information System

The lack of information and consistency at bus stop stations regarding time intervals and passenger waiting time have been two main factors making PT less attractive and effective to residents and tourists. 

 

Implementing sustainable mobility

Electronic signs will be installed in twenty five ‘Smart’ bus stops informing PT users on bus arrival times and other information. In addition, electronic signs will be installed inside the busses informing PT users on bus routes and stops, as well as providing information about nearby attractions, events and sustainable mobility information enabling visitors to plan accordingly and make the best of the PT routes available. These systems will be applied along the sea-side road which connects the tourist area to the city and old town and will consider the needs of both tourists and residents making the use of PT more efficient in terms of time and comfort.

How did the measure progress?

Limassol has identified the 25 bus stops where signs will be installed and has determined the technical specifications in collaboration with the Ministry of Communication and Works for the procurement procedure for the scrolling signs, AVL service system and GPS on buses.

Tender Documents were published on 18 December, 2017. The deadline for tenders was 19 January, 2018, but due to clarifications requesated by the economic operators  a deadline extension was granted.
