EFA - The Electronic Journey Planner

The lastest version of EFA (10.0) is much more than sophisticated transport information for passengers of public transport.

EFA is a powerful route finder through space and time that includes all means of transport, dynamic data, geography and infrastructure.

While searching for routes, EFA no longer uses the data of only one city or region. The performance of the computational core has been improved to integrate the data of multiple countries and calculate cross-border journey planning e.g. from Dublin Airport to Belfast, Northern Ireland in less than a second.

EFA is used by customers all around the globe from Sydney to San Francisco and from Dubai to Dublin. In long-standing cooperation with these and other customers, EFA is the subject of constant and ongoing development aimed at meeting the specific requirements set down by our customers while integrating the newest, most up-to-date technologies.

Today, EFA provides information for pedestrians and cyclists, bus drivers and motorists, for the youth and the elderly, both on the PC and over mobile phone network and landlines in over 20 different languages.

  • Integrated journey planner which uses all means of individual- and public transport
  • Consideration of dynamic data like delays, traffic and incident messages
  • Based on detailed GIS- and infrastructure data
  • Processing of large networks across national- and international borders in one single system
