INDUSTRY OVERVIEW Passenger transport comprises a vast number of transportation options. Besides the traditional public transport system, whose transportation offers are widely based on a fixed timetable, numerous other individual mobility offers are available on the market.
FLS SOFTWARE IN THE PASSENGER TRANSPORT SECTOR The increase in individual (public) passenger transport is based on a number of components. A lot of people want to do without their own car and desire public, individualized transportation options. This is also necessary with regard to the increasing number of older people and people with reduced mobility who can no longer use their own car. Suitable solutions for these people include, for instance, dial-a-ride systems for flexible door-to-door transportation. In the research project NAF Bus, FLS provides the software for utilizing small, independent bus services - a type of ‘public transport on demand’ without a fixed timetable which can be requested via an app.
FLS LINOS is an in-house developed scheduling system for passenger transport, especially tailored to the requirements of transporting students and the disabled. Landschaftsverband Rheinland (LVR) uses this software solution to transport 22,000 people with restricted mobility each day to schools or other institutions and has achieved immense savings.
