Subtitle: Almex itcs system makes travelling on buses more attractive

Hanover / Germany, 06/07/2010. (euro adhoc) - The German company Rhein-Sieg-Verkehrsgesellschaft mbH (RSVG), a public transport corporation responsible for the district of the same name, selected Hoeft & Wessel as its supplier of a telematics solution with an integrated ticketing system. The Almex business division of Hoeft & Wessel will install an Intermodal Transport Control System (itcs) consisting of 278 on-board computers with ticket vending functions and a back-office system. Following the itcs installation, RSVG - headquartered in the town of Troisdorf near Bonn - will be able to reduce braking and acceleration processes by enhancing the influence on traffic signals. This will lead to a substantial acceleration in bus turnaround times and, therefore, to shorter travelling times. Simultaneously, the new system will make it possible to organise the connecting links more efficiently and reliably.

Travelling by bus will become more attractive to RSVG commuters thanks to the new telematics and ticketing system. Moreover, the commuter transport corporation will be able to make its operations more efficient and, therefore, to reduce costs.

As part of the introduction of the itcs, a central control unit will be set up. The control unit combines such centralised functions as showing the current operating status, handling radio transmissions between the central control unit and the vehicles, central management, monitoring and security of connecting links, passenger information at central stops as well as statistical evaluations.

The vehicles are equipped with on-board computers of the almex.optima cl series. In addition to on-board computer functionality, electronic ticketing in conformity with the German VDV-KA standard will be integrated into the new devices without any additional infrastructure having to be created.

With its second order for a telematics solution this year, Almex is successfully positioning itself as a supplier of itcs and ticketing systems for public transport operators in Germany.
