Challenge

How many people can reach a bus stop within 500m? What happens if a stop doesn’t get served temporarily? How would a new route affect the service? Targomo has provided a solution to answer these question for Ruter AS, the public transport authority for Oslo and Akershus counties in Norway.

 

Solution

In order to achieve this, Targomo has set up a system based on its Targomo service in combination with the public Norwegian census data.

 

Result

Users can simulate the removal of an existing stop or adding a new stop interactively in a web application. Instantly, users will see the effect on the networks coverage.  People can see where areas of low service are located immediately, and act accordingly.
