Public transports in data age

  1. 1. Public Transports in Data Age Too much data, not enough knowledgeTeresa Galvão Dias -FEUP Dezembro 2011
  2. 2. Citizens mobility is a major problemCities are increasing very fast whichdemands a well structured plan formobility and transportation planning.Transportation and traffic issues aremajor concerns for governments,authorities and municipalities.Promoting the use of public transports isvital for environmental sustainability andto reduce carbon emissions.2
  3. 3. The Data Age• Data has became central to all activities and business areas.• Concerning mobility and transports, data may come from different data sources, with different owners, providers and users.• Mobility and Transport Data is› dispersed› complex› Valuable There is some gap between the amount of data and information available and the knowledge that we can extract from it.3
  4. 4. Data sourcesRaw data› GPS data› Mobile data› Sensor data› Publicly available planning data (e.g., GTFS)Proprietary systems› GIS (Geographic Information Systems)› Operational Planning Decision Support Systems› Fleet Management Systems› Fleet Maintenance Systems› Ticketing Systems› ERP Systems4
  5. 5. Data providersWho owns the data?› Public transport operators› Transport authorities› Government organizationsWho has access to the data?› Software houses› Public transport operators... sometimes…Who will provide the data?› Data owners... however…› Software houses …. however…5
  6. 6. Data usersAll these data is useful to: What for?• Politicians • Defining the offer• Urban planners and policy makers • Understanding the demand • Income distribution among operators • Resources planning and management• Public Transport Operators • Controlling the operations • Evaluating the operation• Passengers and Citizens • Public Information6
  7. 7. Public Transport new challengesBetter resource planning allows thecompany to control costs and to offera better service.Passengers are more and moreexigent concerning public transportservices.Updated and real time passengerinformation promotes the use ofpublic transports7
  8. 8. Resource planningCurrent trendsSolutions Information Interaction› Interactive › Integrated › Good Usability› Smart › Consistent › GUI based› Robust › Online › Flexibility› Fast8
  9. 9. Passenger InformationCurrent trendsMobility Information Technology› Flexibility (customization: › Integrated › Geo-referenced data (GIS) paths, timetables, vehicles) › Intelligent › Position (GPS)› Integration (intermodality) › Interactive › Portability (smartphones)› Environment (consumption, air, noise) › Visual (graphics, map based) › Mobile (GSM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, infrareds, ...) › Online › Informatics (processors, graphics)9

  21. 21. Too much data, not enough knowledgeThere is a huge amount of data collected by heterogeneous data sources thatare successfully used for specific purposes.However, to take full advantage of the available data there is the need of:› Systems INTEGRATION› COLLABORATION among operators and organizations› POLITICAL commitment› Resources QUALIFICATION21
  22. 22. ConclusionsA new era requires innovative solutions forpublic transport services.Most of these solutions involve complexproblems often requiring intelligentapproaches.Solid knowledge and innovative ideas fortransport planning and public information areneeded.Political and institutional commitment play amajor role in this new generation of productsand services.22
