At the end of April 2006 the first “Training session” was arranged when four people from Tallinn Transport and Tallinn Bus Company Department visited Malmö. The theme was public transport procurement. Tallinn is currently in the process of purchasing close to 500 buses and needed to look at procedures and experiences in Malmö to facilitate their task. During the day Krister Nordland and Henrik Holst, both from the Malmö public transport company, Skånetrafiken, described the procurement process they have been participating in and how to avoid the pit holes. Tallinn in particular, was very interested in traffic signal priority system but also the real time information system that has been installed in Malmö. In the afternoon everyone was equipped with a one day bus ticket and all participants tried out Malmö’s public transport. There were opportunities to see the real time information system in action but also the new voice information that has been installed to help people with disabilities.
