Implementing a real-time information system for public transport
Providing accurate and updated information about services is an effective way of encouraging passengers to use public transportation.
Implementing sustainable mobility
The Ploiesti public transportation company RATPP provides connections throughout the city for a daily average of 300,000 passengers. It operates 62 trams, 193 buses and 10 trolleybuses. Providing real-time passenger information was seen as a way of improving the quality of public transportation, boosting public confidence in the system and increasing passenger numbers.
The information system was launched in December 2001, since when 28 LED panels have been installed at the busiest interchanges. The system was integrated with a new information management system, a new ticketing system and the acquisition of GPS equipment (169 units, entirely equipping the city’s 35 routes).
Measure implementation resulted in:
- Better-quality the public transport
- Increased patronage
- Better financial results
- Improved traffic management within the city centre.
