PTV at IT-TRANS 2022

At the IT-Trans exhibition, PTV Group experts will show world-leading tools for improving public transport and mobility, and for adjusting them to today’s needs. The software solutions include data analysis, visualization, modeling, and simulation. Moreover, PTV Group will be focusing on topics such as rural connectivity, reallocation of public spaces, and reduction of polluting emissions from transportation. This includes the optimization of fleets of e-buses, among other topics.

PTV Group will also take part in the joint stand of the Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion (event hall, EH2) presenting the innovative software-as-a-service product PTV Visum Publisher.
