Whitepaper: Transport management and control in a world of change and complexity

Posted: 1 March 2016 | | No comments yet

In this free-to-view case study from Motorola Solutions, discover how you can increase public transport usage by committing to an improved service quality…

Providing a transit service that is fast, convenient, safe, comfortable and integrated for passengers

A high quality transit service provides consumer surplus, thus attracting travellers who would otherwise drive. Public transport faces a number of challenges resulting from changes in the socio-economic environment. Transport operators are under increasing pressure to manage incidents efficiently, keep schedules and maintain up-to-date information, with limited funds.

Local and global challenges transport management and control

Global trends are impacting how public transport providers optimise service quality for passengers. Rising urban populations, the proliferation of road traffic, climate change legislation, threats to public safety: these are the economic, political and social challenges that will continue to affect anyone involved in public transport in the years ahead. Increasing public transport mode share will also require beating off competition from private forms of transport. Urban-friendly electric vehicles are making it more economical for people to drive themselves.

While the trend for usage of public transport is generally on an upward curve, there remains a focus on driving up the share of travel by collective modes of transport and generate a virtuous circle for public transport. Operators are not complacent; they have to protect revenue and profit margins so they can continue to invest in maintaining and improving services. Every passenger lost to another mode of transport chips away at that investment capital.
