On the 9th of December, ITxPT held the fourth and final Members Meeting and second General Assembly of 2021. The well-attended meeting contained interesting reports from new Principal ITxPT member De Lijn about their upcoming ITxPT implementation and an outside view on ITxPT from guest speaker and consultant Søren Sørensen. Another important topic for the day was the ITxPT roadmap and adding another year to it.
Implementation workshops and consultant workshops
De Lijn – Implementing ITxPT
A significant contribution to the Members Meeting came from the Belgian/Flemish PTA/PTO and new ITxPT Principal member De Lijn. De Lijn has decided to integrate ITxPT out of the need to do more for customers, become more sustainable, and integrate different onboard and back-office systems.
Their case was also an excellent opportunity to start a series of implementation workshops for PTA and PTO. More details on their plan to implement ITxPT in all their 4000 vehicles in the upcoming years in the Members section of the Documentation Center.
To enable public transport authorities and operators to share their experiences from implementing ITxPT, learn from each other, and exchange ideas among peers, ITxPT recently initiated a series of workshops. Open to Strategic and Principal members PTA/O.
As a part of the work to support consultants and their contribution to the ITxPT ecosystem, ITxPT recently launched a series of workshops for consultants.
