  3. Public Transport Authority of North Denmark(the north Jutland region) • Responsible for planning and administration (including e.g. quality and use of ITS). The municipalities/region order traffic and service level. NT organizes the traffic and ensure proper coordination • Buys the traffic from private companies through public tendering (EU regulations) • Include 2 local train lines, 400 buses, 25 private bus contractors and 32 million passengers per year • Special transports for e.g. disabled people, hospitals and specialized schools. Combined trips carried out by 600 taxis and mini buses: 700.000 trips per year 24 April • Athens • Lars Elgaard Thomsen

  4. Facts Total population 200,000 inhabitants City population 120,000 inhabitants Municipality area: 1,144 km2 Road network: 2000 km 24 April • Athens • Lars Elgaard Thomsen

  5. Aalborg and its traffic challenges The urban city area is divided by the Limfjord Only 2 road connections cross the fiord Bottleneck and vulnerable infrastructure Local traffic as well as regional and interregional traffic The city of Aalborg

  6. Traffic situation • Rising congestion on main roads in peak hour • Congestion in inner city, on bridge and approach roads to bridge. Not only in peak hour. • Congestion and size of peak hour fast rising. • Ageing population • High number of urban dwellers • High car dependency

  7. Modal share in Aalborg • Relatively heavy use of bikes • Decreasing numbers of children cycling to school • Decreasing numbers of passengers in Public Transport • Increasing number of cars in inner city

  8. ARCHIMEDES projects in Aalborg • Bio-diesel demonstration in buses and postal service vehicles • Green tourist shuttle bus • Travel smart card testing • Online traffic information • Improved parking information system • Bicycle campaign for schools • Commuter travel plans • Safer environment for soft modes • Speed reduction zones • Bicycle commuter route • 190 city bikes • Car sharing and car pooling campaigns • BYPAD – Bicycle Policy Audit • Environmental zone • Eco- and safe driving • Real time travel planning on the mobile phone • Information screens in buses • Congestion monitoring and reduction 24 April • Athens • Lars Elgaard Thomsen

  9. Real time travel planning on the mobile phone Travel smart card • Online traffic information • Information screens in buses 24 April • Athens • Lars Elgaard Thomsen

  10. IT Architecture – Basic philosophy • Fully integrated system • Small replaceable standard modules • Open standard interfaces, protocols and data formats • Standard hardware – Standard software – standard operating system • No monopoly and freedom of choice within the market • Best performance / price ratio 24 April • Athens • Lars Elgaard Thomsen

  11. IT Architecture – Core elements • Bus PC’s in all buses • Real Time Information at terminals, train stations, super stops, inside buses, on the Internet, SMS, WAP • Compact terminal – IT controlled • Bus priority at intersections • Travel Card in all buses • Infotainment in all buses • Mobile services • Personalised homepage for traffic information 24 April • Athens • Lars Elgaard Thomsen

  12. Operation monitoring BusPC • We have the full infrastructure but especially our information towards the customers can constantly be improved. • Today bus passengers expect that public transport uses all common channels for information. We want to give the passengers the best possible but it’s difficult always to follow the latest technology. • New opportunities comes every day • In the mobile area developments happpens very, very quickly • Many different operating systems for phones and PCs • No direct integration with others traffic operators TravelCard GPRS / WLAN   Compact terminal  AVL  -server  Timetables PubTrans  Realtime  Bus priority

  13. Real time travelplanningon the mobile phone • From the specification in 2007/2008 until now many things have happened concerning smart phones and the possibilities. • NT started with an App and this winter we launched a new HTML-5 version

  14. IT Architecture – New strategy • Still have the same basic system but in the future: • Providing data (good and reliable ) and then let other make the services in cooperation with other transport companies or by private companies. • Delivering timetable data and realtime data to the national travel planner and then have open, standard interfaces, API and other channels supporting different solutions for passenger information • Displays • Homepages • Smartphones • Next: • Correspondence security • Travel guarantee 24 April • Athens • Lars Elgaard Thomsen
