Israel Railways has chosen HaCon’s Train Planning System TPS for its train planning and capacity management, including all schedules and route inquiries for passenger and freight traffic. In addition, HAFAS components for timetable publishing are part of the delivery.
Israel Railways needed a tailored and integrated planning tool for both yearly timetables and future infrastructure and timetables up to 2020 and beyond. HaCon delivered a flexible and configurable solution that guarantees a seamless interaction with third-party systems and a perfect adaptation to the existing IT infrastructure.
Facing a constant rise in traffic demands, Israel Railways director of the long-term planning department Yosef Navon said: “We aim to reach 70 million passengers in 2020, add electrification, and increase the length of track from the current 1,100 kilometers to 1,700 at the same time. We are happy to have a strong partner and software expert like HaCon at our side to meet these challenges at the best possible rate.”
