II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

Scope of the services:
The essential requirement is that Members or their Agents should be able to contract for services in a way that enables them to implement fully-featured information and communication systems in support of public transport operations. The Services cover, generically wireless communications network services suitable for carrying Internet Protocol (IP) data traffic. This includes both long range (eg. GPRS, 3G, LTE) and medium range (eg. Wi-Fi), but not short range (eg. NFC) technologies. RTIG recognises and accepts that the network boundary (i.e. the point at which the Services begin) may vary depending on the Contractor’s architecture and business model — for instance, it could be the air interface, a contractor provided SIM, an internet port, a switch port, etc. Suppliers are expected to be able to deliver to the majority of RTIG members, which in practice means substantial coverage of the UK.
RTIG was established in 2000 to provide a focus for all those involved in UK bus RTI. We now have a comprehensive remit to cover the effective and efficient use of technology in the interests of passenger transport users, operators and sponsors.
RTIG has a wide membership drawn from UK local authorities, bus and rail operators and system suppliers.
The current list of members is not an exhaustive list and subject to change. An updated list of members can be provided upon request at any point throughout the term of the framework.
