Collecting and Disseminating Accurate and Timely Passenger Information

Real-Time Passenger Information 2016 will bring together Local Authorities, Passenger Transport Executives, Transport Operators, RTPI consultants and systems suppliers to discuss and debate the current revolution in information; best practice in Real-Time Passenger Information implementation; best practice in achieving optimum ROI in Real-Time Passenger Information; and cutting edge examples of 3rd generation RTPI and ticketing systems.

Our landmark Real-Time Passenger Information conference launched just four years ago, in 2012; this year will be the fifth annual event. It’s a great opportunity to remind ourselves of the opportunities and challenges, the continually-evolving demands of passengers, and the innovations taking place around the UK and Europe to meet them.

RTPI 2016 will once again bring together the brightest and best minds in the sector, from politicians to passengers and from software to service managers, to pool their experience and help understand the way ahead for passenger transport.
