INIT has been awarded a contract to supply a new technology system for London’s buses, to which on-board, back office and support services will be provided

Specific to the order, INIT will provide an on-board computer (OBU) and ancillary devices for all buses in Transport for London’s fleet. INIT’s technology will be used by TfL to help manage operations on more than 8,000 buses that run on about 700 routes and serve more than 19,000 stops.

The result of the new system will be increased service reliability and high-quality information for customers.

The design philosophy of the replacement system is based on a modular, open-architecture platform built around application programming interfaces (APIs) and open, state-of-the-art computing standards such as MQTT or ITxPT. The system can change over time based on customer needs, allowing modules to be added without the need to redesign existing core solutions. This innovative solution is the culmination of more than six years of effort to develop an extremely powerful open Fleet Management platform that includes a rich selection of customizable tools and services that can be used both in the cloud and in a traditional environment.

Jens Mullak, INIT Limited’s MD said: «We are very proud to be selected by TfL as the supplier for the next generation of the iBus system. This confirms that our long-term technology strategy has been positively recognised. The new system will have a modular open technology platform that is scalable and accommodates TfL’s future development ambitions. We are delighted that TfL joins our existing customer group of more than 1,100 public transport organisations worldwide. Our team is looking forward to working with TfL to deliver a world-class on-bus hardware and back office solution for London».
