LG CNS Smart Transportation

FMS | Bogota, Colombia Fleet Management System

Project Scope

Bogota SIRCI project also includes Fleet Management System(FMS) as well as AFC as its project scope. LG CNS has implemented FMS for 3rd BRT Line (about 700 Trunk buses and 250 Feeder buses) and 10,000 Zonal buses which have been reformed through SITP program(Bus system reform), and operated from August of 2012. In addition, it plans to integrate existing FMS of 1st and 2nd BRT Lines established by the other provider into the new FMS by the end of 2015.

As the result, the city can monitor the operating status of all buses of the city comprehensively and control the buses in one center. And it helps for the bus companies to do cost-effective bus operation and management such as making the bus operation plan, dispatching drivers and buses, and controlling operation. In addition, the bus schedule and the estimated arrival time have served for passengers through information display panels in vehicles and in stations.

The modes of transport consist of:

  • 1) A Bus Rapid Transit(BRT) system consisting of 1,666 trunk buses running on 75 lines with 157 stations
  • 2) about 9,900 zonal buses run by 9 operators
  • 3) 914 feeder buses which feed the BRT stations.
