In the DEFAS-Munich project, the cross-company cooperation of the transport companies and their passenger information and connection assurance systems in the stationary area was implemented on time for the first time. This is due to a cross-company working group with the parties involved (MVG, DB Station&Service, S-Bahn Munich, MVV, Bayerische Eisenbahngesellschaft and the government of Upper Bavaria).

The result is visible to passengers with the installation of pre-announcement displays and train destination displays in both the S-Bahn and U-Bahn areas. Behind this is a complex software architecture (Munich solution), so that passengers have access to cross-operational information on departure times and their connections in real time.

MRK acted as project and system controller for the implementation of DEFAS-Munich (Integrated Electronic Passenger Information and Connection Assurance System).
