WebApp Features

Mind the app - but don't forget the web!

With the HAFAS Responsive Web App, HaCon developed a client that defines the design depending on the device. Unlike conventional client server applications, no software installation is necessary – all that’s needed is a web browser. By clicking on a map, users can easily determine the desired points of arrival and departure while drop-down menus help to define specific parameters. Both the convenient one-field search and the semantic speech search facilitate selecting departure and arrival stations.

Line Search Made Easy

Frequent public transport users don’t always need the classic trip planning tools to get from A to B; rather, they already know which modes are running between their start and destination. For them, it is more interesting to access the routes of buses and trains as well as the stops nearby. By means of our WebApp’s new line search, users can see the routes of individual lines and filter according to the respective end stops or directions. With activated live map, the moving vehicles along the routes will be visible in real time. Transferring passengers can click on a stop in the map and easily jump to another line. For faster retrieval, frequently used lines can be marked as favorites. Integrated departure boards complete the overall package.

 

HIM Messages at a Glance

The latest feature of our WebApp visualizes HIM-based messages on delays, construction sites, closures, auxiliary services, interim bus stops and even events on the map. This way, transport companies can inform their customers about current disruptions and planned measures prior to their journey and provide information on alternative connections. Via the menu, message types and the number of displayed modes of transport can be shown or hidden. In addition, the search allows to find specific disruptions, for example on a certain line or route.
