VBB`s Passenger Information Service
Berlin and Brandenburg passengers are now treated with four new and innovative functions available in VBB’s (the transport authority of the Berlin-Brandenburg area) time table information service, since January 2011. The main idea is customer-friendly focus.
Intelligent suggestion list :
While typing a starting or destination point in the VBB route
planner (“VBB-Fahrinfo.de”), the travel information service offers immediately a list of possible stations or addresses. The start or destination looked for may be directly selected or you finish to write the name until the fitting result appears. This new function helps to save time. Further, the “VBB-Fahrinfo” remembers all those stations and addresses for your next search and will instantly display them when typing in again the first letters – and that saves even more time.
Display of present travel connection on facebook
“I am just leaving at…”, “See you in the café…”, “Will arrive via bus no 100 at Brandenburger Tor” : The just calculated connection could be shown directly to your facebook friends. More and more people appreciate to meet to a very specific time in a certain bus or train or just at the station and want to inform their friends on facebook about it.
Add calculated travel connection in your time table
Do you use outlook or any other e-mail programme that provides a calendar option ? You then would love this new innovation ! The displayed travel route can be copied into your planner (by one click) and you will always have it with you in your smartphone with sync-function. You always have the correct data about the means of transport you shall use when leaving the event.
Send travel connections via e-mail
Send your estimated connection to friends or business partners via e-mail and show them when you will arrive and by what means of transport. You can also tell them how you will get to an event and give them an individual arrival advice.
Have a nice trip !
