r2p provides Open Data Services to many of our customers. Open Data means different things to different people, to us it is all about making data available so that public transport information can be as available wherever and whenever the traveling public want in which format and through which channel is best for them.
Readily available information to the public has been proved to be an important factor in the decision making process to take a bus. The more places and formats this can be made available in the more likely it is to meet the needs of a specific customer.No longer is it possible to just provide a display on street or a website, a multi-channel and format approach is needed to ensure that expectations are met.
The providers of the data also expect security and dependability to be at the forefront. This case study refers to a number of our systems deployed in the UK, and re-enforces our experience and expertise.
