IVU.realtime + IVU.journey

Real-time information across all channels


Up-to-date and correct passenger information at stop displays and on your smartphone – IVU.realtime keeps customers informed in real time across all channels. The dynamic passenger information system, which is directly linked to the control centre, generates a consistent flow of data from the vehicle to the passenger.

Standardised interfaces connect IVU.realtime to a number of different data sources, including external data hubs. The system uses the incoming real-time data to calculate passenger-appropriate departure forecasts and transmits this information automatically to the various output media. Where required, information can be added manually and automatically and relayed either visually or acoustically over external systems.

The IVU.realtime.app is the perfect app for passengers – complete with a departure monitor, real-time connection search tool, trip companion and door-to-door navigation. Just like all other output media, it can be fully adapted to your transport company’s individual design requirements.

If you also want to give passengers the option to look for information on the website, the IVU.journey travel planning system is a good place to start. Whether you are travelling directly to your destination or your trip involves changes, stops, and journey interruptions – the system always calculates the best connection. IVU.journey also factors car- and bike-sharing initiatives into the route calculations where these services are available.

The mobile IVU.realtime.app informs passengers about current departures and accompanies them from door to door
