Documentation

What sort of documentation is available?

Transmodel v6 is provided in modular form. The series comprises the following documents:

  • Public Transport Reference Data Model – Part 1: Common Concepts
  • Public Transport Reference Data Model – Part 2:  Public Transport Network
  • Public Transport Reference Data Model – Part 3:  Timing Information and Vehicle Scheduling
  • Public Transport Reference Data Model – Part 4: Operations Monitoring and Control
  • Public Transport Reference Data Model – Part 5: Fare Management
  • Public Transport Reference Data Model – Part 6: Passenger Information
  • Public Transport Reference Data Model – Part 7: Driver Management
  • Public Transport Reference Data Model – Part 8: Management Information and Statistics

Together these documents create version 6 of the European Standard EN 12896, known as “Transmodel” and thus replace Transmodel V5.1 and IFOPT (Identification of Fixed Objects for Public Transport, EN28701).

The split into several documents is intended to ease the task of users interested in particular functional domains. Parts 1-2-3 are finalised 2015.
