RTPI 2013 David Hytch

  1. 1. David Hytch Information Systems Director Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) Transport for Greater Manchester’s Plans for a new RTPI & Traffic Management System Traditional development and delivery
  2. 2. Personalisation and architecture Travel Information & Network Efficiency David Hytch Information Systems Director Transport for Greater Manchester
  3. 3. •10 district councils •493 square miles •2.69m residents •1m passenger journeys per weekday •1m international leisure visitors a year •10 Million trees Greater Manchester
  4. 4. Greater Manchester economy Greater Manchester: • is the economic powerhouse of the North • accounts for around 40% of Gross Value Added (GVA) in the North West • generates £47 billion of GVA on an annual basis (Higher than the GVA of the North East (£41 billion), West Yorkshire (£39 billion) and Merseyside (£20 billion)
  5. 5. Transport governance 10 district councils AGMA/GMCA TfGM Committee
  6. 6. Bus services • 220m passenger journeys a year • 45 bus operators • Bus use static • 12500 bus stops
  7. 7. Rail services •25m journeys a year •45% growth in last five years •21,000 passengers in am peak •109 stations
  8. 8. Metrolink •Over 22m passenger journeys a year •100kms by 2016 •96 trams •Owned by TfGM •Operated by RATP Ltd
  9. 9. Highways • 2nd largest UTC unit in country • 9,200km of roads in GM • 2,200 traffic signals • Speeding cameras • 45,000 speeding offenders • 19,000 fines • 4,000 summons • 22,000 driver improvement courses • On target for a 40% reduction in KSI road casualties
  10. 10. Promoting travel choices • Walking and cycling • Improved cycle lanes and infrastructure across GM • Free adult cycle training delivered • 10 cycle hubs in key locations • Business travel planning • Electric vehicle infrastructure • Car sharing scheme
  11. 11. Local Sustainable Transport Fund Vision “Let’s get to work, bringing people, jobs and enterprise together with a well-connected, integrated transport system that is better, faster and greener.”
  12. 12. Why? Stimulate development of applications that create better informed travellers and smarter journey choices.
  13. 13. Current Issues • Customers unable to access real-time information and updates about their journeys • Ability to plan journeys does not currently incorporate all modes e.g. car, cycling – does not give informed choices • Limited visibility of how the whole transport network is performing • Limited ability to react to incidents and disruptions affecting the network
  14. 14. Background • Design and Deliver distinct, technology led initiatives to embed longer-term behaviour change through: o real time and dynamic passenger information o dynamic network interventions o priority to late running buses at traffic signals • Getting more customers to work, education, healthcare and leisure in a more sustainable and efficient manner
  15. 15. Criteria Get more customers using sustainable travel options to access employment, education and leisure by providing: • Passenger centric • Multi modal, multi operator, multi channel passenger information • Improved selection of travel • Accessible transport • Systems that are easy to use • Comprehensive data and information with integrity • Best in class implementation and operation • Predictive traffic management • Improved road journey time reliability
  16. 16. Key Challenges • Large number of complex data sets to provide multi-modal, multi- operator solution • Deliver architecture that is flexible enough to manage data across the whole transport network in the available timescales • Obtaining appropriate real-time data feeds from large number of different bus operators in a deregulated market • Traditional supply and procurement models
  17. 17. Customer Experience – Travel Information • Customer able to make intelligent travel decision-making before their journey and track their progress during it, re-planning if necessary • Truly multi-modal, covering all travel choices including cycling and walking • Simple, accessible and intuitive to use • Transparent information • Personalised content - relevant to them and their journey • Less reliance on hoping for the best, planning for the worst
  18. 18. Customer Experience – Network Efficiency • More predictable and reliable journey times on the highway, particularly at peak times – affecting customers such as car owners, freight, PT operators, cyclists etc. • More reliable bus journeys on key routes due to signal priority for late running buses • Less contingency being built in to journeys as a result giving people more time Passive Sensor Network Network Oversight Facility Situation Managed
  19. 19. Network Efficiency - Bus Priority AVL feed to centralised Automated Vehicle Management System Deliver Bus Priority to Traffic Signals Bus Priority Request to UTC system
  20. 20. Architectural Design Principles • Scalable and flexible • Based upon open industry standards where possible • Building a capability to deliver post LSTF • Look ahead to future cities • Integration of public transport, highway and active travel options • Join up with key stakeholders:
  21. 21. Business Context Support economic prosperity & environmental sustainability Obtain funding Promote Excellence TfGM Business Exec Funding Body (e.g. DfT) Assist Local Community Assist Business Community Provide Services <<includes>> Business Intelligence <<includes>> Suppliers Local Community Business Community TfGM EmployeesProvide Training <<includes>> Improve Services <<includes>> <<extends>> <<includes>> <<includes>> Journey Planning Highway Control Alerts/ Info Network Visibility <<includes>> Static network info Static network perturbations Dynamic network info <<inclues>> <<includes>> <<includes>> Monitor Supplier Performance <<includes>> Two key areas for data systems: • Network Visibility • Provide Services
  22. 22. Note: The boxes coloured pink identify those required for Stage 1 – Network Visibility; those in yellow are for Stage 2 – Provision of Transport Services. Conceptual View of System Design
  23. 23. Open Data • Open Data platform launched in March – including new real-time feeds which will continue to be built upon through rest of LSTF: • Real-time API for Metroshuttle City Centre buses • Real-time API for car journey times on A56 and A6 • Real-time API car park availability • Weekly GTFS data feed of PT timetable data • Routes to the Future - Innovation Challenge for developers using open data feeds– Approximately 70 developers registered to attend.
  24. 24. Open Data HyperIsland 50 MSc students from around the world Challenge to reduce car needs by 2033 Solutions, all different, all using Open Data, smart technology Tracking services New Approach to park and ride and community Augmented biological data Internet of things and people
  25. 25. Market Sounding • Undertook Market Sounding late 2012 with 36 suppliers • Key Findings: o No one supplier can deliver full solution o Open interfaces and open standards should be used wherever possible o Good data and data ownership is critical
  26. 26. Benefits
  27. 27. Monitoring • Exploit the ‘on-line’ nature of the interaction with the customer to easily observe the success of delivery, via website statistics • Use online surveys to ask about changes in behaviour and satisfaction • Monitor number of data requests from 3rd parties • Use before and after data for journey times, flows etc on highway to determine the effects • Measure punctuality and reliability of bus service journey times before and after highway and bus priority measures
