Journey time reliability along strategic routes is easily achieved through an intelligent central management software system removing the cost and disruption often associated with installing additional roadside infrastructure.
PTIM allows selected vehicle priority at traffic signals using virtual detection zones and trigger point data to reduce congestion and improve city centre road space management and capacity.
PTIM helps our clients meet their objectives of reduced congestion along with smooth running, safer road spaces in and out of cities. It facilitates free-flowing public transport, which decreases pollution, encourages more passengers and improves safety across transport networks.
Utilising position data from operational vehicle location systems, PTIM uses virtual loops, trigger point data and algorithms to determine and request priority at traffic signals based on queueing, journey times and schedule delays. Sites can be easily configured in a matter of minutes. It can successfully operate on bus location data with updates from 1 to 20 seconds.
As it’s a virtual system, PTIM reduces costs and does not require additional on-street devices or disruptive civil works. Effective vehicle priority allows Public Transport Operators to deliver a more reliable, efficient service to the customer.
Intelligent monitoring within PTIM evaluates the status and progress of vehicles and responds appropriately. Average queue times are significantly reduced, particularly during peak hours, drastically reducing journey times for passengers.
PTIM effectively monitors vehicle usage on the network via a map-based user interface allowing greater visibility and responses in real-time. PTIM provides fast updates and, combined with CCTV, allows users to fine tune system performance quickly. Its comprehensive reporting capabilities, including pinch points, deliver all the information required to continually assess and refine system parameters to optimise network performance.
A centralised network response is provided by PTIM. It identifies problem locations and allows a corridor and city wide, rather than a ‘fixed’ single junction, response. This smart approach manages headway to prevent bunching and helps keep public transport services on time and on schedule.
PTIM’s extensive reporting function enables the operator to analyse data and review performance at any time to aid future planning and contributing to the delivery of smarter mobility for our clients.
