Tracsis Passenger Analytics have developed a software solution for collecting Automated Passenger Count (APC) data, providing an enhanced processing and matching capability, and reporting to the DfT specification. The current version of the software Passenger Count Database Software (PCDS & PCDS HOST) allows us to push processed data to an external database or Bi-system. More and more operators are switching to our software because of its functionality and cloud based solution for accessing passenger data and reports, time and cost efficiencies, enhanced matching capabilities, and high confidence levels.


  • The software is not restricted by any specific fleet manufacture or hardware supplier and can take all APC unit data.
  • Data can be collected via a remote dial-in connection, pushed to a secure Ftp server or emailed via a service desk.


APC or manual data can be used within PCDS allowing the user to collate all types of passenger data in one usable format. Should a TOC wish to incorporate processed data then this can be achieve via PCDS HOST. 

  • Through PCDS data is matched against the loadings for LTP & STP services.
  • Matching on actual running times and Network data feeds.
  • Potential for matching against actual consist data.


Data is hosted on a unique user interface, giving the client full control and ability to filter and review the data in multiple ways, such as line of route, headcode, station or origin/ destination, all at the push of a button. 

  • Clients can access their passenger census/Green Book reports through the software.
  • Report on short-formed services.
  • Potential to report live loading data.
  • Ability to integrate with external BI Systems.
  • Run status reports to identify faulty systems on units.
