Newly available data promises passengers better alternatives in public transportation during disruptions
Wednesday, 24 June 2015
Advising a one-size-fits-all ‘alternative route’ for all passengers when metros or trains are disrupted is no longer the only option. Automated fare collection systems such as the OV-chipkaart in the Netherlands and the Oyster card in London, as well as everyday technology such as apps on smart phones, can produce detailed and personalised customer journey information that can be used to create new travel plans for each passenger when there is a disruption in the network. This information has only recently become available to public transport operators, and it features in new research by PhD candidate Evelien van der Hurk of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) in close collaboration with Dutch railway operator NS.The research reveals that the usage of these data sources can give travellers a better experience during disruptions.
