Reliable and on time: r2p’s real time information system to improve public transport services in Blackpool

r2p announces a new order from Blackpool Transport for supplying an operator real time information and reporting system using r2p’s new direct input app.

With the new order r2p will supply a system for 20 buses and 18 trams, and taking in information for a further 100 buses. The project has started in November 2017 and includes the easily installed android direct input app, which gives the driver of the vehicle control of his operations.

The cooperation between Blackpool Transport and Nimbus as a part of the r2p Group started around a year ago with a first project and has since then been expanded. Russell Gard, Managing Director of r2p UK, says: “We are very happy that we could build such a strong relationship with Blackpool Transport during the last year. Thanks to the close collaboration and the exchange on our customers’ needs we are able to supply the products based upon the customers’ requirements quickly, efficiently and cost effectively.”
