Free State of Bavaria
MRK supported the DEFAS FGI BAYERN project as project and system controller from the conceptual design stage, through the preparation of specifications and the Europe-wide invitation to tender, to commissioning. Based on a feasibility study prepared by MRK for the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology, the objective of the Free State of Bavaria was to upgrade the computer-aided operations control systems for the generation of real-time public transport information throughout the state, to set up the Bavaria-wide data pool and to provide passengers with passenger information based on real-time data via the Internet, but also via stationary and mobile systems. For the client, the focus was on a modular and therefore future-proof system that would also be operated by the provider for the coming years. The main challenge was to coordinate the data transfer contracts. The Bavarian timetable is online!
