-- Stand 40, Kensington Town Hall, London, 29-30th October --

Journey Planning Software Provider to Demonstrate Travel Planning Solutions for Handheld PCs.

Travel InfoSystems, the travel planning software specialists, today announced that its new products RailPlanner Pocket and TubePlanner Pocket will be demonstrated for the first time at Passenger Transport Solutions, 29-30th October 2002. Terry Hiles, Managing Director of Travel InfoSystems will also be presenting on the topic “Overcoming Data Integration Issues in Public Transport Information Supply” in the afternoon seminar session on Wednesday 30th October, starting at 12.00pm.

RailPlanner Pocket is an instant journey planner for PDAs and handheld PCs, which covers all UK rail networks, connecting ferry services and the Eurostar. It is an invaluable tool for both regular travellers, and for customer assistance, allowing operational or platform staff to give travellers accurate information on train times. The compact software can calculate the most convenient or fastest route around multiple destinations and offers information on the availability of the services on-board such as refreshments, and reservations.

Visitors to the stand will also get an exclusive pre-launch preview of Travel InfoSystems’ London journey planner with a difference, TubePlanner Pocket. Underground users can navigate the capital by entering stations, street names or landmarks as the start and end point, and find out the nearest station to an ultimate destination - be this a street, cinema, hotel, restaurant, bar or place of interest. The software also provides information on first and last trains, fares, engineering works and station facilities, as well as a fully zoomable London Tube map that displays the recommended route and the complete network. It’s the ultimate London guide for PDAs.

“Anyone who works within the public transport industry knows how important it is to provide travellers with accurate up-to-date information. As train services increase, for example the 78 new trains that Virgin has added to its service, it is vital to ensure travellers are kept up-to-date with all available routes,” comments Terry Hiles, managing director at Travel InfoSystems. “The RailPlanner and TubePlanner Pocket products are invaluable tools for transport assistance personnel and travellers on the go; they are compact mobile solutions that empower transport staff and enable travellers to easily navigate the UK’s complex rail and Tube networks.”

As well as demonstrating the Pocket solutions, Travel InfoSystems will also be demonstrating travel solution favourites like CityPlanner, TubePlanner Web, and RailPlanner for Windows and the Web. They will also be holding a prize draw for all those who leave their business cards at stand 40. Prizes will include 5 copies of RailPlanner Pocket and a magnum of champagne.
