NSB awards contract for timetable information system

HaCon has won a tender to supply its HAFAS timetable information system to the Norwegian state railway operator NSB.

The real-time journey planner will be able to warn passengers about potential delays, offer alternative routes and show actual seat occupation on trains.

Peter Hausken, ICT manager for operations at NSB, said: “Whether the railway traffic runs as planned or there are planned or unplanned disturbances, we want to inform our passengers about the status and their travel options.

“The aim is to offer good transport solutions with premium information systems for the customers at all times.”
