Our Solution

Data analytics supports transport operations management by providing insights into travel demand, traveller behaviour and network supply. The agent-based Transit Assignment Engine, developed utilising a microservice architecture and the latest techniques in stream processing, utilises smart card and GTFS data to simulate passenger travel dynamics down to vehicle, stop and anonymised passenger (agent).

This tool can be used for network-wide insights, as well as the detail required for incident management decision support: if a station closes, our transit assignment tool can identify how many passengers are affected, their estimated locations and destinations. This extends the team’s analytical capabilities in planning and operational management to maintain network stability and reduce passenger inconvenience.
