Running a successful public transit service can be challenging. Your goal is to deploy as many vehicles as necessary to fulfill the demand of your customers. On the other hand, you need to organize your work procedures as efficiently as possible and make the best use of further cost saving potentials. With INIT’s analyzing and optimization tools you can improve the management of your assets and increase the efficiency of your resources. In turn, you will positively improve the aspired service quality and customer experience.
Informed management decisions
Today’s public transit is all about the customer experience. The number one requirement is to provide high quality service. So obviously, public transit managers want to be informed about the performance of vehicles within their network. During any operational day, MOBILEstatistics provides an instant overview of key performance indicators and gives you the power to improve the overall customer experience.
Comprehensive analyses and reporting
Precise data on punctuality, time spent at stops, unexpected delays, and passenger numbers help you to identify weak points and increase potential for improvements. INIT’s analysis and evaluation tool, MOBILEstatistics, provides deep insight into the quality of operations and gives you a solid information basisfor further increasing the efficiency of operations. As a result, schedules, routes and the deployment of vehicles and staff can be optimized. In addition, the data can be used for the distribution of revenues. In the process you get a comprehensive analysis of your operations for better reporting and management.
Automated feedback into planning
Automated feedback of statistical data into your planning system allows you to recognize systematic deviations between scheduled data and the actual situation. This means your planners can use these data immediately to create new schedules, blocks and duties by using optimization runs. MOBILEloop allows your planners to build realistic schedules for higher punctuality due to improved vehicle assignments.
Automatic Passenger Counting
The Automatic Passenger Counting system, MOBILE-APC, uses the most accurate sensors currently available on the market – the IRMA sensor. Passenger counts are matched with the schedule data and can be evaluated in MOBILEstatistics to identify where service and demand don’t match, or to produce reports for revenue distribution. In addition, information on passenger loads can be transferred in real time to keep dispatcher and passengers informed. Even more important today, is stationary counting because it supports guidance of passenger flows in stations, and to less crowded sections of incoming trains.
Ecological and economical management of fleets
Modern vehicles are equipped to continuously monitor the current status of their systems. The value of such monitoring lies in the ability to use the data to optimize vehicle maintenance and improve driver behavior.
Driving behavior is the factor which is most easily influenced and adjusted. Savings between 5 and 10 % can be achieved within a relatively short time by adopting a more defensive driving style. MOBILE-ECO2 helps drivers through awareness of alternate driving behaviors that allow them to maximize this potential for savings.
