Field Trip

Transport modeling for public transport - technology, workflow, use cases

Public transport services are complex systems, where passengers expect a high-quality service, operators need to provide economically viable services, and authorities require accessibility and sustainable modal split. To achieve these multiple interests, public transport planers rely on digital modeling tools that enable them to quickly develop different scenarios and test them.

As an expert in the field of public transport, you are probably aware of PTV Group’s software for public transport planning: The more familiar PTV Visum, and the recently launched PTV Lines. Within the framework of the fair, you have the chance to join a session, that briefly introduces you to the market-leading software tools and learn how to develop efficient and sustainable transport solutions whose effects can be directly measured.
