Public Transport

Understanding how passengers use public transport and its infrastructure is crucial when planning public transport networks. It's also vital when designing stations and interchanges.

Real-world applications

Passenger Counts Database Software:

Each step of the Passenger Counts Database Software (PDCS) process is managed by a dedicated team of system and data managers, rail consultants and software developers.

How it works

Data Collection:

  • Manual surveyor observation
  • Pen and paper data capture
  • Software-based data capture
  • Video camera

Processing & Matching Data:

This is carried out via the PCDS software which decrypts raw data files. It can then sort & match data against the current timetable - including the STP. We can also incorporate manual data into the software.
