Good Practices - Public Transport Interchanges

Traffic monitoring and management: Floating Car Data (FCD) as traffic sensors. Result of S.I.MO.NE Project - Italy

  1. Topic of the practice - The use of FCD as sensors in monitoring traffic in real time required the study and development of a new scalable architecture able to link several FCD providers with local mobility control centre; new protocol able to deal with all data related the mobility management; new functions able to aggregate  and normalize different FCD format coming from different providers; etc. The design and the implementation of all these stuffs had been made in order to be used in three different towns (Torino, Genova and Bologna) and in two Provinces (Cagliari and Florence).
  2. Location of the practice -  Torino/Italy
  3. Description of the practice- All the partners of the SIMONE Project were already operating a traffic control centre before of the start of the project. Simone provided the change to renew and improve these centres and to better integrate with other ITS system already in place in the area (UTC, Parking management, LTZ, PT facilities, VMS).
  4. Evidence of success -  All building blocks of the project have been designed and implement to be portable and scalable; these are already used in 5 different traffic control centres.

Stimer/Mi Muovo Project - Mobility Integrated Fare System in RER (Emilia-Romagna Region) buses, trains and bike sharing - Italy

  1. Topic of the practice - STIMER  is the Mobility integrated fare system based on an all encompassing ticket  for the local and regional public transport and on the RER fare zoning and a technological management system.The fare integration is made possible through the chip card “MI MUOVO (I Move)”.
  2. Location of the practice -  Regione Emilia-Romagna/Italy
  3. Start of the practices - 1997
  4. Description of the practice- STIMER  has  substituted  the old fare system, based on the trip distance to be covered (calculated in kilometers), with a new system based on areas (zones) to be crossed. To reach this aim RER has divided the regional territory in over 400 fare zones. The use of different transport means at an integrated fare, regardless of  the transport means used (bus or train), is made possible by the contact-less card MI MUOVO.
  5. Evidence of success -  One indicator is represented by the monitoring on MI MUOVO ticket sales from 2008 onwards, i.e.:  A strong increase to “fidelization” took place:  annual ticket +40%; monthly ticket +51%. At  present over 192,000 cards have already been issued. Satisfying feedback came out from the customer satisfaction  research, that is 95,3% with a medium mark of 7,86 out of 10,00.

Multi-channel Information system on mobility at regional scale - Italy

  1. Topic of the practice - The Service Centre "Moving" acquires, processes and distributes information about the entire mobility system of the Campania Region. The particular characteristics of the service are: completeness of the information related to the entire regional system of mobility, and the "intercanalita", namely the dissemination of all media from the data and information received and processed by the center.
  2. Location of the practice -  Campania/ Italy
  3. Start date of the practice- 2004
  4. Description of the practice- The information is acquired either directly interfacing with the operators of transport systems that operate in the region. The direct acquisition takes place using video cameras for traffic monitoring, placed on the main roads of regional interest. The interface with the operators is defined both by the level of computerization of the managers that the type of information to be acquired. In some cases it has been made a direct connection between the service center and the central control period, in other occurs through the transmission of text messages. The information thus acquired are included in the database of the computer platform. When preparing the information to be validated and localized. The location allows you to correlate information from different sources and related to the same geographical area. At each item of information is assigned a priority level based on the type of the transport system and the duration of the event. The priority level assigned to information regulates the spread. For the distribution of the news editors of the Service Center produces newsletters (audio and video), containing real, virtual animations and virtual animations on real images. The information is disseminated through the dedicated website, also available in mobile format, and the facebook page.
  5. Evidence of success - The project allowed to extent the monitored area of Campania Region.


Public Transport dispatching under KORDIS integrator/organizer: CED - Czech Republic

  1. Topic of the practice - CED dispatching centre is a part of the regional integrated multimodal PT system. The main CED aim is to ensure operational issues, to transfer information on real time transportation status towards information centres, to ensure transportation organizing during traffic closures etc.
  2. Location of the practice -  Brno and South Moravian region/Czech Republic
  3. Start date of the practice- 2005
  4. Description of the practice- The application for the project “Development of transport services in the South Moravian Region in the form of IDS” from SROP in the overall concept was based on the development of public transport in South Moravia. The project was also in line with the strategic plans for the development of the South Moravian Region and the City of Brno. CED  offers a long term monitoring and evaluating of PT regularity in the region to obtain a feedback for PT timetables, maintenance and development of routes and fleets, and also enables checking of standards compliance and quality control. The regional PT subjects (mainly transporters) are coordinated by CED in the time of designing and planning of timetables. Centrally integrated regional CED functionalities are very important for PT controlling, necessary for a smooth operation and timely managing of exceptional situations. Learn more on IDS JMK online http://www.idsjmk.cz/.
  5. Evidence of success - Actual benefits: established, being operated and geographical service area extended to the maximum on the regional level; new linked services created (i.e. real time timetables for smartphones), planned (i.e. personal timetables creation available) and considered. CED includes information on positioning on about 1300 vehicles incl. ca 100 trains; Daily more than 130 phone calls; Daily over 30.000 connections ensured.

  1. Topic of the practice - The “Construction Project for the Principe Pio transport interchange station” was presented in January 2005 by the joint venture consisting of the companies EST-EYCO and BB&J Consult S.A, at the request of the Madrid City Council. The transportation interchange is divided into two levels, each of which has 15 bus bays arranged around a central area of passengers.
  2. Location of the practice -   Madrid/ Spain
  3. Start date of the practice- 2004
  4. Description of the practice- Príncipe Pío is one of the most important interchanges in Madrid, as it offers connections between all forms of public transport: metro, suburban railways and city and suburban buses. The operations carried out in 1995 brought Metro Lines 6 and 10 inside the historic station building, thus significantly improving connections with the commuter rail network and the Metro branch line running to Ópera. Connections between the Metro, the suburban railway network and suburban buses have been steadily increasing year after year. This has led to traffic jams in the square close to the station building because the bus stops were located above ground. In an attempt to sidestep this problem, a new underground interchange has been constructed under the station courtyard in order to house the suburban bus companies that serve the A-5 corridor. Its unveiling in 2007 has done away with the congestion that the above-ground bus stops previously caused, and has also made significant improvements in the day-to-day lives of over 60,000 travelers who use suburban buses and the Metro every day. The new interchange terminal is built on two levels, each one of which has 14 bus platforms arranged around a central waiting area. Access for users is through two pavilions located above the current Station patio. On the first level, there is a connection with the Metro and bus access is by Paseo de la Florida. On the second level, access to the interchange terminal is through a tunnel that connects with the M-30, the internal orbital road of Madrid city, providing an easy and quick connection to the A-5 road.
