With a campaign, we are strengthening the awareness for the need to first let people get off the vehicle before you get on.
If you first let people get off the bus before you get on, our buses do not have to spend so much time at the bus stop. Sounds logical – and it is!
Around 30,000 passengers use the services of Graz Linien every day. A lot of time is wasted at the stops both for buses and for trams, in particular at very busy stops, because passengers get in each other’s way when getting off and on the bus. Time is also lost when people get on the buses because buying a ticket from the bus driver takes up additional time.
To accelerate boarding and alighting in day-to-day traffic, Joanneum University of Applied Sciences (Department of Building, Energy & Society) developed on behalf of and in collaboration with Graz Linien a joint key issues document for an acceleration concept for public transport in Graz and examined the topic of speeding up boarding and alighting in more detail. Graz Linien have adopted the recommendations formulated during the study in the area of passenger conduct and developed a five-point programme.
