Buses could help Copenhagen reach its goal of becoming the first carbon-neutral


25 April 2013 - Thanks to Compass4D services, bus drivers will get support to better keep their time schedules. On-board units (OBU) mounted on buses will alert the driver about incidents or congestion at cross roads. This will not only benefit drivers, but also the city population who will be able to better rely on public transport to local parks or swimming pools day in and day out. Buses support the economy.  The vital role buses play in greening the environment was also highlighted, “Buses help reduce congestion on roads, promote social inclusion by providing a link to those without other means and reduce our carbon footprint and the effect of our trips on the environment”.

 

The Copenhagen test is particularly relevant to the project as the city will deploy new cooperative technology systems on at least 90 buses and in 21 traffic signals, becoming the largest test site in Europe to do so. Some 200 bus drivers will be using the Intelligent Transport System (ITS) services and the route chosen for the pilot site is a central bus connection running between Copenhagen Central Station, in the city centre, and the important East Gate Station (Østerport) hub for regional, commuter and S-trains, and the underground starting in 2018. It is estimated that over 77,000 passengers use the bus lines between these stations every day.
