adibus LaneManagement

Overview of the core elements of adibus LaneManagement

How does the bus choose the right lane at the station if there is a space for several buses in the same line?


adibus LaneManagement helps with priority, signage and direction of buses at multi line stations where several buses share the same lane.

adibus LaneManagement ensures that:

  • the order of buses in bus lanes is correct according to departure time
  • signage at the station indicates correct platform numbers
  • control of the depot at the station where the buses are on breaks
  • passengers receive information about bus position
  • driver receives information about the platform on real-time terminals or via infoscreens

The system is particularly suitable for compact stations, where buses have no fixed places, but share common bus lanes.

  • 1. STATION

  • 2. SERVER

  • 3. BUS

  • 4. GPS

Each bus is eguipped with RealTime system (adibus RealTime) delivering GPS, forecasts and information to the station about buses arrival and departure. In addition driver receives information on driver terminal about platform number before arrival.


There is a GPS antenna on the roof of the bus for positioning.

Mobile network
