Journeo secures £2.25M passenger information systems purchase orders from Hertfordshire County Council
Journeo plc, a Leicester company specialising in information systems and technical services for transport operators and local authorities, has successfully secured purchase orders valued at £2.25 million from Hertfordshire County Council (HCC).
The purchase orders are for the implementation of Journeo’s advanced real-time passenger information systems and software, which will be deployed in bus shelters and at strategic locations across Hertfordshire county. The planning, design, and manufacturing processes are already underway, and it is expected that the majority of the revenue from this project will be realised by March 2024.
Hertfordshire County Council, with a population of 1.2 million residents and a network of more than 4,200 bus stops, has been a strong advocate for the Bus Back Better strategy, with a primary goal of significantly enhancing public transportation services. Journeo’s information systems and software will play a pivotal role in supporting HCC’s commitments as outlined in its Bus Service Improvement Plans (BSIPs).
Russ Singleton, Chief Executive of Journeo plc, said: “We have been working with HCC for many years and are delighted they have chosen our latest display systems and software as we work closely with them to deliver their BSIPs. The UK Government set out clear objectives with local authorities to deliver BSIPs of which providing the accurate and up-to-date information is key to encouraging a modal shift towards the use of public transport.”
