SOMOBIL

Improvement of public transport service
on a mobility-oriented basis

DI Daniel ELIAS, nast consulting ZT GmbH

Impact
The increasing changes in the mobility
area on the part of different user groups
require a dynamic consideration of the
requirements and interactions in the
transport system and the areas activity
associated therewith. As a general rule,
the databases needed for this are only
available to transport service providers
and the public sector to a limited extent.
Hence if floating phone data were
available, a decisive expansion of the
databases would be possible for the
public transport sector.

Implementation
Specific measures suggested for
different study areas for optimizing
public transport services and linking
them to other modes of transport were
examined in the scope of the study. For
data analysis purposes, a prototype was
developed that automatically analyzes
the floating phone data in stepwise
fashion. This protype can also display
the results visually, with corresponding
search and selection functions taken
into account.

“ The use and analysis of floating phone data for the planning process in the transport sector (using SOMOBIL for public transport as an example) constitutes a substantial
enrichment for the creation of concepts and for mobility planning based thereon, provided
that current data sets are available. Very good correlations between household surveys and
floating phone data were established for the regional zone on the basis of the comparisons
with household data from the Office of the Upper Austrian Provincial Government.”

On the basis of floating phone data and household data, solution
concepts relating to individual requirements were developed for
improving the public transport service.

The user-appropriate planning of public transport in regions is a key requirement for
achieving suitable connectivity and attractiveness in the face of changing framework
conditions. Data on transport modes such as source/target relationships or desired lines in
geographically isolated areas are currently insufficient. To remedy this, floating phone data
were used in SOMOBIL as a comprehensive basis, thus enabling the analysis of large-scale
transport relationships at a reasonable economic expense.

With consideration given to floating phone data in coordination with other available
transport and mobility data and in collaboration with experts from the Austrian provincial
governments and transport associations, methods were developed for creating user-
appropriate planning solutions for public transport. The information thus obtained was
used to create planning solutions with specific planning measures that fit the requirements
(which were in turn classified according to traffic periods and user groups).

VOR-RIDER

Social media communication as a basis
for a needs-oriented and effective planning
of student traffic

Dipl.-Ing. Ulrike Brocza, PRISMA solutions

Implementation
Experiences from the VOR-Rider project
led to the idea of a schedule analysis
tool. In collaboration with PRISMA
solutions and VOR (Traffic Association
Eastern Region), a software was developed
that evaluates schedules according to
mobility needs in terms of time (ways to
and from school). VOR is presently
(September 2016) testing the application.

“ The greatest hurdle in this project lay in motivating the students to participate. The basic premise that gamification is the only way to motivate students to cooperate in a
thematic field such as this proved to be unfounded. To the contrary, we underestimated the
students in this regard. In fact valuable feedback was obtained on specific issues without
accompanying ‘staging’.”

The goal of the VOR-Rider research project was that of building
customer relationships in the public transport sector through the use
of social media, and using new methods to obtain information on the
actual mobility needs of travelers.

The planning of student transport
poses a challenge to the Public
Transport Association Eastern
Region (VOR by its German initials).
This is so because in recent years,
the framework conditions in student
transport have undergone some
substantial changes: On the one
hand, the presence of students at
school is extending to the afternoon
to an increasingly greater extent
because of the development of

afternoon care and the introduction of all-day forms of school. Consequently, the time
periods in which children and adolescents need suitable bus and train connections in order
to get home are likewise being prolonged into the late afternoon. The decline of boarding
schools, the less stringent school district regulations, and the prioritizing of schools are
also leading to longer ways to schools. On the other hand, the database for estimating
student travel has become inadequate since the introduction of the convenient year n
etwork ticket for the entire transport association (Top Youth Ticket). Whereas the former
free travel applications required information on the home address, school address, and
modes of transport used and thus made it possible to show source/target relationships,
information about the way to school is no longer required to buy a Top Youth Ticket. The
planning bases for the Public Transport Association Eastern Region have therefore clearly
deteriorated. At the same time student transport is a topic with a presence in public
perception. Any negative cases could therefore draw sharp criticism from the media.

In the face of this starting situation, the VOR-Rider research project resorted to new
methods: In the first phase, a study was conducted to determine how a customer relationship
could be established with the students via social networks and a website with assignments
on the topic of “public transport” and regular awarding of prizes. In the second phase, the
participants were provided with an app that was developed specifically for this project for
recording the routes actually taken.

Impact
The project provided important information
as to which (new) methods are suitable,
or not, for assessing mobility needs and
satisfaction. Individual offerings such
as the public transport feedback site
yielded results that could be evaluated
contentwise and thus contribute towards
concrete improvements to the service.
It was thus concluded that the students
were clearly more satisfied with the
public transport service than was
assumed and that an alternative data
source must be used to solve the current
planning issues.
