GP: Bus Management System in Iasi - Romania PDF Print E-mail

Currently there are no systems tracking public transport vehicles in Iasi. As a result it is difficult to continuously monitor the quality of PT services and optimise services. Iasi is also unable to pass on information about delays to users. An Automatic Vehicle Location system will provide a better basis for the monitoring and planning.

The City of Iasi is located in north-eastern Romania and is the second largest Romanian city, after Bucharest, with a population of 366,000 inhabitants. It is also the center of a metropolitan area, which occupies a surface of 787.87 square kilometers, encompassing a total population of 398,000 inhabitants.


Objectives / Innovative Aspects

An Automatic Vehicle Location - AVL - system will provide a better basis for monitoring and planning PT services. Moreover it will enable Iasi to pass on up to date information to PT users.

The main objective of this measure is to build a common platform for integrated monitoring and passenger information services.

By gathering relevant information from driver and operators attitudes towards the system, the measure can improve the quality and reliability of the PTI services. Leading to better acceptance and usage of these services by citizens. By monitoring the traffic with a GPS system we can reduce response times to problems..

The Measure

As part of this measure a GPS traffic management system will be introduced. The system will be set up to track public transport vehicles, and use this information to prioritise and optimise PT to make it more attractive for PT users.

A total of 75 buses and trams will be fitted with the equipment. The system will provide data for RTPI and bus priority systems.

Implimentation Status

Iasi will launch a tender for and implement a GPS based AVL and management system. Implementation of the system will take place in November 2009.

(Expected) Results

Data will be collected both before and after, and an impact and process evaluation will be carried out.

The initial ideas on relevant indicators and methods for this specific measure are:

  • operation statistics (e.g. down periods, GPS connection, precision)
  • driver attitudes towards system
  • operators attitude towards system.

Interviews with drivers and operators as well as system log's are considered for the site evaluation to demonstrate the impacts of the measure. This work is done by Iasi and the public transport company PTI.
