THE HAMPSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL ROMANSE PROJECT DEVELOPMENT OF TRIPLANNERS

This paper explores the development and evaluation of TRIPlanners-Multimodal public transport information terminals, which were installed in Southampton as part of the ROMANSE project within the European Union DRIVE II program. Various processes involved in the development are highlighted, including: 1) collection of timetable data from a large number of public transport operators, 2) reduction of information to a common database format, 3) development of a network of public transport services, and 4) interchange points and gazetteers of places served by public transport. It also describes the constraints on the design of the hardware and the software interfaces and the integration of software and data into a robust system for use by the public. References will be made to the private vehicle information components of the system and to the parallel development of databases to update the database whenever services change. Ten TRIPlanner units are in use at major transport interchanges and public places in Southampton. Results of an evaluation of the system covering ergonomics, usage statistics, and user acceptance are included.
