|GP: Guidance and Real-time Information - Graz - Austria|
Modern communication and location equipment as well as real-time passenger information have been introduced in Graz Public Transport. The new system have resulted in fewer disruptions, better traffic flow, better service, speed of operation and accessibility, reduced emissions and energy use.
The computerized operational control centre in Graz enables an efficient organization of the operation of tramways and buses. Passengers find real time information about the numbers and destinations of the next buses or trams and the departure-times of these vehicles, information about delays and special incidents (construction works, accidents, buses as substitute for trams, additional buses / trams, etc.). The real time information makes the journey time feel shorter. If there is a little delay of a feeder bus or tram, connections between lines can be guaranteed. This saves time for passengers.
