Operations planning in an understandable and flexible form – done easily with the aid of a browser

With its newest-generation planning system, Trapeze offers comprehensive functionality paired with the convenience of a browser-based, easy-to-use interface. In addition to integrated trip, tour and service planning, the layout template also supports the creation of timetable posters and printed schedule booklets. Thanks to standard interfaces with the upstream and downstream systems, data exchanges are child’s play. The availability of all the relevant information in the multi-user-enabled database and GIS functionality allow faster and easier adjustment of planning to operational changes as well as extensive possibilities of evaluation.

LIO Business Intelligence enhances operating efficiency

Reliable operating data are a valuable source of information for any transport company, for they are the key to improving the quality of services. With its new Business Intelligence tool, Trapeze offers a comprehensive solution in this area. Easy-to-create reports and analyses offer a permanent overview of a company’s performance. They allow the benefits of the ITCS systems of Trapeze to be utilised in the best possible way and operations to be decisively optimised.

Real-time passenger information made easy

The new TDI data interface of Trapeze (= Traveller Data Interface) enables transport companies and other service providers to offer passengers online and real-time service data via an App. All the data originate from a single source and are therefore always up-to-date and consistent. Moreover, they can be combined in multiple ways. This allows individualised travel information to be generated with a high level of meaningfulness and accuracy.

Incident management supports dispatchers

With its LIO-IDS system, Trapeze offers dispatchers an entirely new tool for intelligent decision-making support (IDS = Intelligent Decision Support). In case of incidents, LIO-IDS not only displays operations-related information, but also proposes intelligent and correct actions that are independent of the specific situation. The Incident Manager module offers dispatchers, supervisors and shift managers an optimal overview of all current service occurrences. The Procedure Manager module enables work procedures and processes to be defined and allocated to individual incidents.

On-board computers for all applications

Trapeze can offer every customer a suitable on-board computer solution from its portfolio. A complete on-board computer functionality is offered, for example, by the tried-and-tested combination of the IDR on-board computer and the Intelligent Touch Terminal ITT. To supplement our portfolio, we have now also developed the new, low-cost IP Terminal IPT, which is available in 7” and 8” versions. The ITT suggests itself as a standalone solution for a smaller scope of functions or our SmartVLU-App for displays on mobile devices.

Vast experience, global presence, local implementation

With its track record of several decades and its sound expertise, Trapeze is the ideal partner for all public transport projects. Consistent system solutions reduce travel times of buses and trains, increase the punctuality of services, improve the accuracy of transfers and ensure permanently available passenger information. Trapeze integrates both new and existing components in state-of-the-art total systems.
