PTV Visum is the world's leading software for demand-based and service-oriented public transport network and service planning. The comprehensive tool offers detailed planning and analysis functions as well as easy-to-interpret graphical views that cover strategic and operational processes across public transport planning. In addition to the public transport supply users can also model the transport demand and assign it to network. Hereby, it is among other things possible to account for the vehicles' capacity restrictions, to optimise vehicle usage and to analyse costs and revenues. This slides give you 10 reasons at a glance why you should use PTV Visum for your public transport planning.
