ETS taps Trapeze for new ITS solution

Posted on August 31, 2012

Trapeze Group will provide the Edmonton Transit System (ETS) with a new comprehensive intelligent transportation system to help them better manage their fixed-route bus service and provide travelers with real time transit information.

Guided by the “City Vision and The Way We Move” transportation master plan, ETS developed a three-year business plan that focuses on improving the quality of life for Edmonton citizens by making improvements to the public transit system. The Trapeze intelligent transportation solution was selected to help address ETS's objective for a fully integrated, progressive, easy-to-use, public transit system that supports economic development and helps improve the quality of life in Edmonton.

Computer-aided dispatch and automatic vehicle location (CAD/AVL) from Trapeze Group along with Trapeze's real time traveler information solutions, enables ETS to provide riders with critical traveler pre-trip information, such as real-time arrival and departure information at bus stops, on the Web and on their mobile devices as well on-trip information, such as next stop announcements on the bus.

For dispatchers the Trapeze CAD/AVL system means they can monitor and manage the fleet in real time helping to ensure on-time performance and providing the ability to respond to service disruptions more quickly for greater efficiencies. Via an onboard monitoring solution, further vehicle and driver analysis is collected and reviewed for potential improvements on vehicle performance.

For bus operators the Trapeze onboard mobile data terminals makes logging into the vehicle system easy with single sign-on capabilities connected to all the in-vehicle systems including third-party equipment.
