Bus stories

The environmental and logistics problems of megacities are getting worse from year to year due to population growth and rising traffic congestion. Let's have a look at transport infrastructure, for example. In many cities the roads were designed for considerably less traffic and it is now extremely difficult to upgrade them in densely-built urban areas. Thus, experts need to seek solutions taking into account many external factors and limitations. One of the promising ways to reduce traffic jams and increase passenger traffic is to develop intelligent urban multi-transport systems. Buses - the most common form of public transportation - may act as a part of such system. The article offers some successful examples of the creation of automated control systems for a bus depot.

Automated fare collection and ticket inspection systems for public transport

Automated fare collection and ticket inspection systems (AFCTIS) are an integral part of transport infrastructure in large cities. The modern AFCTIS system is not only a means of fare collection in certain types of transport; it is also a multi-purpose complex that analyzes the passenger traffic and provides flexible tariff plans as well as other transport-related services. The article discusses some specific features of the state-of-the-art AFCTIS system using Moscow’s transport system as an example.
