Qbuzz is expanding and the IVU.suite is growing with it

In the Netherlands, 311 new buses are operating with the IVU.suite / Systems installed in record time

(PresseBox) (Berlin, ) After the successful start of the Dutch transport company Qbuzz in December 2008, operating at first with 142 buses, the company has now been able to win another concession. On 13 December 2009, 311 additional buses began operations - all equipped with the systems from IVU.

In the three months between winning the concession and beginning operations, the 311 new vehicles were fitted with onboard computers and the equipment for reporting their position to the control centre and the displays at the bus stops. That requires experience and stable software which can be implemented rapidly and which functions reliably. Qbuzz has continued to operate with the IVU.suite, which had already proved it could cope successfully with the demands of the transport company when it started operations in 2008.

In the setup phase, the complete IVU.suite was installed at the young company in record time. Since then, the IVU systems have been in use for data management, operational control, passenger information and also quality control. Right from the start they ensured efficiency and troublefree operations. No wonder, then, that Qbuzz once again placed its faith in IVU in 2009. As a result, all the new buses of the Dutch transport company have been equipped with the onboard computer and IVU.cockpit, the software for the control of functions in the buses and for communication with the control centre and the bus depot. Punctually with the start of the winter schedules, the IVU systems were also able to take over new timetables, vehicle schedules, and duty rosters. With that everything was in place for a successful start for the new bus fleet.

"We are very satisfied with the systems from IVU", says Leon Struijk, director of Qbuzz. "Despite an implementation phase of only a few months, all the buses could go into service on time. And so far everything has been working very satisfactorily."
