The demand for continuously better safety, service and efficiency increases the requirements for collection, analysis and presentation of data for the operation and use of public transport.

COWI provides consultancy to transport companies and local authorities on development, tendering, implementation and operation of solutions within public transport based on new technology.

Real-time information
For Danish transport authorities, COWI has carried out a number of projects. These include the design and management of online positioning of buses via GPS for traffic management and optimisation, information on estimated arrival time at stop points, traffic centres and the Internet, automatic platform allocation for buses at compact terminals and transit signal priority.

Electronic ticketing and ticket vending machines
COWI provides consultancy on the design and implementation of systems for electronic ticketing and ticket vending machines.
