Bavaria, Germany

Germany’s largest fleet management system

Covering all key public transportation processes for the major part of Bavaria in one single system? Too difficult? Not with an integrated multi-client ITS system from INIT. It comprises functions for fleet management, passenger information, ticketing, staff roster planning and on-demand services as well as all on-board equipment. And the benefit? It makes public transport more efficient for the operators and more attractive for the passengers.

The challenge

DB Frankenbus, DB Ostbayernbus, DB Oberbayernbus and Regionalverkehr Allgäu are the four original INIT clients of this outstanding project. These Bavarian companies of DB Regio Bus with the help of – at that time – 500 subcontractors, provide bus services for 60 rural districts and 23 towns and cities throughout almost all of Bavaria, including routes that cross into Austria and the Czech Republic. To realize their goals of offering excellent service to passengers and streamlining operations across all participating companies, a partner was required who had the skills and resources to create an integrated telematics system.

The solution

Based on the integrated overall solution MOBILE, INIT created Germany’s largest telematics system to date. This multi-client system now manages more than 4,000 buses, and passenger information for more than 37,000 stops in real time. Moreover, ticketing is now standardized and managed centrally.


  • Synergy effects due to multi-client structure
  • Efficient control of operations
  • Excellent driver support e.g. through turn-by-turn navigation

Improved service quality by:

  • Dove-tailed service
  • Real-time passenger information
  • Cross-company connection protection
  • Standardized ticketing
  • On-demand offers
  • Increased punctuality

The conclusion

The integrated multi-client solution for ticketing, ITCS and passenger information helps the Bavarian bus companies of DB Regio Bus to better manage the challenges of their business. All key tasks are covered by the comprehensive MOBILE product range. This results in a complete solution which offers maximum integration for a more efficient handling of operational processes. The multi-client design further contributes to enhanced efficiency without jeopardizing the economic independence of individual companies. But the greatest benefits are for passengers – in the shape of on-time buses, guaranteed connections and real time information, even in rural areas.
