Project description

MERITS is a single database containing timetable data for many different railway companies. The data is integrated and reproduced twice a week. MERITS is designed to provide rapid access for each railway company to all the data needed to produce timetables and to operate with a single source of data, thereby doing away with large volumes of multilateral exchanges.
The MERITS timetable data consists of:

  • Train schedules and services
  • Location database
  • MCTs (minimum connection times)
  • Use of MERITS data

The integrated MERITS data is used to provide a broad overview of railway undertakings’ timetable data, including domestic and international trains, for the following purposes:

  • Customer information
  • Journey planning
  • Ticket booking
  • Feeding mobile applications
  • UIC licenses MERITS integrated data to third parties.
