Information-based Disturbance Management for Public Transport

Improving the ability to take action for users and planners of public transport.

The aim of this project is to support the development of decision support including information services for both transport planners and travellers in case of disturbances in the public transport network. The idea is to consider a holistic view of multiple transport operators and travellers’ ability to re-plan, that is, to take action.

The focus of this project is on the information needs and the information availability, for example, by using IoT-based services. The project focuses on transports relevant for travellers typically going to and from the regular work place and their homes (and not long distance travel) including also using more than one mode of transport.

Project period: 2015-04-01 – 2017-12-31

Funding: Vinnova, Trafikverket and Formas, through K2 – The National Knowledge Center for Public Transport.

Contact: The project is coordinated by Jan A. Persson, IOTAP, Malmö University.
