Website collates city travel information
Transport and information systems specialists have worked with Leicester City Council to develop a 'one-stop shop' website delivering live local transport information.
The site, www.leicestertravel.info, provides users with a variety of information including latest road work news, car park occupancy, CCTV images and real-time bus stop information. The information is pulled together from a number of internal sources previously inaccessible to the public. This means users only have to visit one site to find travel information for the Leicester area.
Mott MacDonald was employed to develop a system that collates all the operational data required for the website. The system then feeds this data to the public website, which was developed by Kizoom.
Mott MacDonald project manager Pete McLeod said, ̶0;We thoroughly enjoyed working on this interesting project; the appointment builds on our earlier work on other traffic information systems for Leicester City Council and it is hoped the website can be further enhanced to bring more real time information to the public.̶1;
Kizoom is a specialist travel information systems and service company which has pioneered mobile internet public transport information.
