Jacobs wins contract extension for Transperth Route Information System
Jacobs Engineering Group said it received a five-year contract extension from the Western Australia Public Transport Authority to provide support services for the Transperth Route Information System. Transperth provides the Perth metropolitan region with bus, train and ferry public transport services. Jacobs has provided support services for PTA's TRIS for 15 years, including design, implementation and ongoing management. The system was originally developed to manage bus contracts, but its modular design and flexibility led to it becoming an enterprise solution for the organization. It now helps the PTA manage public transport contracts, bus stop maintenance, customer feedback, lost/seized property, land management, asset management and much more.
