VABnet Demand: We offer ITCS with a fully integrated module for on-demand transportation.

Cost pressure and demographic change have a particular impact on public transport in rural areas. A declining and ageing population is significantly reducing the number of passengers in many regions. This means that regular services with standard buses are not always economical. Provision of demand-oriented forms of operation can help, but poses new demands on ITCS and customer information.

  • Customer and travel season ticket management for recurring on-demand trips
