RTIG InformRTIG Logo RTPI conference 2013

RTIG is a community group which seeks to establish, support and promulgate good practice in the use of information and communications technology in public transport. With members from public authorities, transport operators, consultancies and the systems industry, we have an impartial perspective and support the common good. We have an excellent relationship with national Government and work closely with other community groups.

RTIG works on behalf of its members as a whole, and delivers benefits though a range of activities, events and publications. Regular workshops enable members to discuss their concerns and to share their experiences in a non-contractual environment. An extensive library of standards and guidance documents assists those implementing systems, and we represent the passenger transport community on UK and European standards committees. We work closely with other like-minded community bodies, as well as with central and devolved Governments in the interests of the industry as a whole.

Harp Visual CommunicationsHarp RTPI conference 2013

The suite allows solutions to be built and tailored as new operators present their data. Formats already off the shelf include Transxchange TXC, ATCO,-CIF and LTA timetable data plus some custom legacy formats already in use.

Information is parsed into a real time data base running centrally within the PTE data centre. This is then fed out in pre-built lists for specific bay and destination screens so that the information can be graphically rendered locally.  Prediction can be optionally invoked to estimate journey times between stops or manual intervention in the event of traffic incidents.

ITS UKITS Logo - RTPI conference 2013

Intelligent Transport Systems: a combination of Information Technology and telecommunications, allowing the provision of on-line information in all areas of public and private administration. ITS can be applied to road transport to improve efficiency and safety through the provision of on-line information to drivers in their vehicles and by equipping the vehicle with computerised systems which assist the driver (e.g. following and lane keeping).

It also improves the efficiency of transport by use of electronic systems to improve traffic control and enforcement of traffic regulations. Electronic motorway tolling and congestion charging are also ITS options.

Management of vehicle fleets, both freight and public transport, can also be improved by the provision of on-line information and two way communication between manager and driver. Provision of on-line information to bus, train, and train passengers creates a better informed traveller. Electronic ticketing (by means of Smartcards, for example) enables faster, easier travel by public transport. Intelligent Transport Systems will have beneficial effects on the environment by reducing air and noise pollution on highways and by helping to create traffic free zones in cities.
