PTV: A guide to simple and effective digital public transport service planning

PTV have published a white paper, “Ultimate Guide to The Best Public Transport Service”, to highlight the advantages of digitalized network and timetable design, as pen, paper, Excel and Google Maps are no longer up to date and far too prone to error.

Jam-packed buses, delayed trains – for many people, public transport evokes negative associations. That’s too bad, for actually it deserves applause. Public transport doesn’t just take people from point A to point B; instead, it’s an indispensable part of an inclusive and sustainable society. Public transport offers people the opportunity to participate in social life, no matter what their income, how old they are, or whether what they have physical disabilities. 

Public transport use in 2023 and 2024 is still lagging behind 2019 levels. In an attempt to change this, PYV have come up with a guide on how to make the most of public transport and inspire people to use it.

With PTV Lines, public transport service planning can be digitised, facilitating collaboration between your teams, reducing transcription errors and boosting creativity and productivity in the planning process. PTV Lines is a web-based tool, that enables planners to quickly test measures for network design and timetables and understand their effects on the service. PTV Lines is easy to set up and work with: get started right away and edit stops, lines routes and timetables and visualize your ideas. You get instant feedback of the estimated operational costs and can intersect your supply with your GIS data.
