CIVITAS Case Study - Integrated e-ticketing system in Craiova

Craiova’s public transport system was designed in line with the CIVITAS and MODERN project’s vision. It is an integrated system with three components: e-ticketing, video surveillance, and public transport fleet management. The real time information provided by the system is processed in the traffic management centre of RAT, the local transport company. The three structures are closely connected as they share a large part of the hardware and communication architecture. The on-board control units ensure the best performance and have proven to be an excellent technological solution. The traffic management centre (dispatch), the core of the system, integrates the software applications specific to each of the three subsystems. This new system makes public transport in the city more reliable, more oriented towards travellers’ needs and enhances the service provided.
