The Transport Department is committed to providing the world's best transport system which is safe, reliable, efficient, environmentally friendly and satisfying to both users and operators.

Challenges

The first Transport Information System (TIS) of the Transport Department was implemented by PCCW Solutions in 2008 as an expandable central data repository for storing and maintaining transport and traffic data, in order to unify the business functions into a standardized browser-based user interface. The Transport Department needed to modernize and upgrade its existing TIS to enhance system performance, streamline day-to-day operations, and enable more efficient processing of a vast amount of traffic and transport data using advanced technologies, so as to synchronize with the HKSAR Government’s smart city initiative.
