Details

The aim of the research project was the optimization of long-distance bus terminals by means of a terminal slot management and information system, which was connected to the web application by Fluidtime. The web application DISBUS accesses the FluidHub technology to provide the following information to the passengers of the bus terminals:

  • Departure and arrival monitor
  • route search
  • Display of important points in the vicinity, such as public transport stops, taxi stands, bikesharing stations and carsharing (with and without fixed rental stations)

Furthermore, the GTFS (General Transit Feed Specification) and GTFS-RT (General Transit Feed Specification Real Time) data processor were integrated for DISBUS and a data transfer interface was set up with the project partners.
