Digitalization in public transport makes it necessary to deal with new systems and terms. From APC to Validator: The following overview is intended to provide those responsible and specialists in the transportation sector with an overview of the confusion of terms in modern transportation.
Public transport (PT) includes all local means of transport on fixed routes at fixed intervals. As a rule, these are high-capacity, short- to medium-range means of passenger transportation such as buses, subways, and streetcars. Public transport stands in contrast to individual and long-distance transport.
ITCS stands for “Intermodal Transport Control System” and is a computer-based operations control system for planning, controlling and monitoring the entire operation on board public transport vehicles. It is used in particular to control the following areas: communication between vehicle and control center, computer-aided operation, dynamic passenger information in vehicles and at stops.
A Passenger Information System (PIS) provides passengers with live data at bus stops and in vehicles. This includes route information with current arrival and departure times, line numbers, delays and reports of obstructions. It also allows transit agencies to offer advertising via indoor monitors and thus generate an additional source of revenue.
