Connection optimization by MENTZ – public transportation on schedule
Passenger satisfaction with public transportation depends to a large extent on whether passengers reach their destinations on time and conveniently given the connections and transfers. MENTZ connection optimization therefore not only detects reliably relevant connections based on the current timetable situation, but also helps evaluate and optimize connection quality.

Establish connection rating
Connections are rated using customizable function graphs. Connections with short interchange times (T1) and/or long waiting times (T3) are rated “poor”, while connections in the ideal range (T2) are rated “good”.
Visualize connection quality
You can visually represent connection quality as best suits your purposes. This allows you to see connection problems more quickly.
Show connection quality based on trip pairs
A connection’s trip pairs are kept separate in each view, and all details of each are available. This is helpful when you want to check a certain stop’s connection quality.
You can display the rating of each individual pair of trips in the form of a function graph. A red indicator on the graph shows the exact transfer time. Either of the connecting trips can be shifted as necessary.
Schematically represent connection relationships
In the network schedule, you see a schematic display of connection relationships and ratings. Where necessary, trips can be shifted to improve connection quality in a targeted manner.
Display trip shift effects
As soon as individual connection qualities change, these indicators display them in real time and highlight them graphically. Other details about associated route relationships can be called up at any time.
