Siemens And Trapeze Group Team Up To Improve San Antonio, TX Bus System Travel Times

The intelligent transportation system operates through Siemens NextConnect software and Trapeze Group’s currently installed GPS system. When a bus is in a virtual detection zone, the transit system sends a signal priority request to the Siemens i2 traffic management system. The request is relayed to the intersection traffic controller which requests the traffic system to provide a green light for the approaching transit vehicle.

“VIA has been a valued Trapeze customer for more than 15 years, and they are an award-winning agency for good reason. Their systems and processes are state of the art, and their customer-centric focus is to be applauded,” stated John Hines, president of Trapeze Group. “VIA understands that utilizing an enterprise solution such as Trapeze for their transit hardware and software enables them to provide these customer-centric processes and services, from real time information to advanced scheduling that provides better service and GPS technologies to know where the bus is at all times. The agency is a pioneer embracing technology systems and coming up with innovative ways to utilize Trapeze to the maximum benefit of both the agency and their customers.”

The new system is being launched on December 17 through VIA’s new Primo bus rapid transit system.
