Bergen Light Rail’s challenge was transforming a single-line light rail (20 km) into a comprehensive network, adding multiple extensions. How could they expand the network to optimize operational efficiency, increase ridership, and reduce costs?



Our Solution

Asistobe software combined internal PT data with external data sources and leveraged AI to get a deep understanding of the real transportation needs in Bergen. Based on this, the tool proposed future transport scenarios that could efficiently handle an expanding network and suggested infrastructure improvements to optimize OPEX and CAPEX.




Comparing to the suggested plans without Asistobe’s optimization methods, Asistobe proposed operational patterns with reduced kilometers driven, increased capacity in high-density areas without the need for additional rolling stock, and maintained traveler comfort levels.
