Demand Responsive Transport The final DRT solution would be a supplement to the existing PT Network, as far as i'm aware a lot of these DRT services are used as a "feeder" into the core public transport network. Though maybe we can limit this using an interchange option like "allow interchange from DRT"?

Demand Responsive Transport Following on from the meeting at the East Of England Accessibility meeting the following proposal was suggested: -

The pick up area would be defined by a polygon

The Drop off area would be a point on the map.

During the calculation the the user will specify the number of pickup's being made by the DRT service. This will then trigger an addition to the journey time. This addition would consist of either a set time per pickup - i.e. each pick-up takes 5 minutes - or would be a proportion of the journey time within the pick-up zone. This needs to be ironed out.

The DRT settings would need to include the following information: -

  • Unique Service Identifier
  • Days of Operation
  • Times of Operation
  • Restrictions of use - i.e. people going to hospital only
  • Is the DRT linked to another service - i.e. is a feeder service for Arriva bus 28.
  • What vehicle is being used and it's capacity - limit number of pickups
  • The proportionate speed that's used when travelling on the road network - or set speed.
  • Maximum speed able to be travelled.
  • Wait time - could be incorporated into the number of pick-ups above.
This seems quite similar to the proposal made by Richard. What are users views?

Transference of Accession to outside the UK Hi Keith,

This is fascinating, I actually did a presentation on Accession to some American clients on behalf of Citilabs, they were extremely keen on the software, though it all fell apart when it came to using their Google Transit Data. I think once this data can be imported then Accession will truly be a global tool.

On a separate note, during my time working with Accession we have sold licences to Australia, South Africa and the Republic of Ireland. The consultants who have used the software in these countries built the public transport network from scratch which as you can imagine was a pain staking experience for them.

Transference of Accession to outside the UK Keith,

For future reference you can get different co-ordinate system files for America or you can edit the original. This can be done in the Accession folder, try double-clicking the British file.

How long did the total process take from start to finish to create your accessibility maps including the conversion of the data?

Mastermap ITN Data Rowley,

Ok great, just had confirmation back from OS that the schema has not changed at all. Do you think it's easier loading the GZ compressed file or do you think it would be easier to load in the raw GML file?

NPTDR Oct 2011 The Dft have basically said it's imminent so keep checking. It will be released here first.

The data will be uploaded to the DfT site shortly with each individual ATCO area able to be downloaded.

Traveline National Dataset (TNDS) Basemap and Traveline can confirm that the Traveline National Dataset was released this week. This contains the full public transport dataset for GB and is set to be updated weekly. This has been released as part of the Open Government Licence, and allows commercial re-use. For more information and access please look at http://traveline.info/tnds.

Census 2011 Good find Rob, do you think the 2011 census will be a powerful and useful dataset?

Traveline National Dataset (TNDS) Hi Rowley,

This is a problem, to do with registration with .NET of the validator. For XML validator registration, since it is .NET dll, it requires .NET2.0 runtime installed. To manually register the dll, using the following steps:
1. Navigate to C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework, thereshould be a directory with a name such as “v2.0.X”, where X is some minorversion number (such as 50727) , if this directorydoes not exist, you need to install .NET 2.0 runtime (download it fromMicrosoft website)
2. Start command prompt, if you are running Vista, youneed to run it as Administrator
3. Navigate to Accession install directory (C:\Program Files\Accession), where you should find XSLellentValidator.dll, type the following command:
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\regasm XSLellentValidator.dll ; remember 50727 is the minor version number, depending on the versionof .NET 2.0 runtime installed, this number may be different on differentmachines.

Traveline National Dataset (TNDS) Hi, do you have admin privileges on the machine?

Traveline National Dataset (TNDS) Rowley,

Have you tried this again with admin privileges?

Traveline National Dataset (TNDS) Hi Rowley,

This is an issue to do with internet connectivity. Part of the validation process Accession needs to validate the TXC file online. If there is block on the internet/port/protocol this is the error message that is returned. I have a client testing to find out which ports needs to be open for Accession to validate. As soon as we know the answer I will be sure to post the solution here.

NPTDR Oct 2011 I'm not sure, I know that people are being pushed towards using the TNDS dataset more at the moment.

NPTDR 2012 Hi Rob,

This is a good question, there is a possibility it might not be released. I would suggest using the TNDS dataset to get the latest bus datasets. For more information on this see: -

NPTDR 2012 Hi RC,

After chatting to the Department for Transport, it has not yet been decided if it's worthwhile continuing with the NPTDR as the data is available from other sources, like the TNDS outlined previously.


1/24/2013 2:19:35 PM
NPTDR 2012 Unfortunately there are no other alternatives to the TNDS at present. Also the TNDS only covers the bus, tube and some ferry services. For the rail information you need to access this from ATOC, and currently the coach data is being discussed about becoming an open data set.
