UKD - North West (England)
Total value £6,000,000

Lancashire is committed to promoting bus travel across the County. It is currently developing a technology-based approach for network management including the deployment of intelligent bus priority at key signalised junctions and the provision of a Real Time Passenger Information(RTPI) system to support local bus services and improve the customer experience. A new RTPI system is a key component of the Lancashire
Future Mobility Platform and was central to the Bus Theme in the recent East Lancashire LUF Application, as well as supporting the Council’s broader policies for promoting sustainable transport, digitalisation, and carbon reduction.
The Council is seeking to appoint an RTPI system provider to enable the countywide processing and publishing of bus arrival times and predictions to digital displays at bus stops, interchanges, and bus stations and via web-based information services and applications. Audio facilities providing ‘talking bus stops’ for visually impaired people will also be included in the specification. The successful system provider will be responsible for the supply, installation, and maintenance of a central RTPI system, on street RTPI displays and associated communications for the course of the contract. In addition, the Council requires the system provider to design, supply, install and maintain a Traffic Light Priority system for buses at signalised junctions and for bus services as specified by the Council.
This will require linking to the current Lancashire Urban Traffic Control system provided by Yunex Limited.
