Electronic Bus Service Registration
EBSR is replacing the current paper based registration process, where operators physically produce registrations for VOSA and Local Authorities.
EBSR provides the information required for a registration, including the timetable element, in a TransXChange XML format file. The route must be sufficiently detailed to enable it to be electronically mapped and details of the registration (with service and operator information) need to be included.
As a part of our TransXChange software, the EBSR module is designed to provide an efficient answer to the provision of Electronic Bus Service Registrations. Once a user has input details of the operator, service and registration, the module will extract all registration journeys from OmniTIMES data and mapping details from OmniMAP to create TransXChange format registration documents ready to be sent to VOSA.
Built-in validation process
In addition, the module validates against the Registration Schema and won’t allow the file to be Saved (and therefore submitted) if it fails validation. To help organisations keep a track of service changes electronically, a stored history of previous registrations is held centrally, and can be recalled easily.
Seamless data integration
EBSR has a significant impact for local authorities who already use our timetabling platform (OmniTIMES). The time consuming business of interpreting and manually inputting registrations will disappear at a stroke. Using the timetable data currently held for Traveline the modification or creation of timetables for the EBSR process is simple, streamlining this function.
Seamless with scheduling platform
For operators, the move to EBSR, with data fed directly from the scheduling system, will remove the need for the paperwork associated with changes in registrations. This speeds up the process significantly and will ensure the accurate interpretation of registrations by those who receive and use them.

The ease of use and speed of the software allows me to produce data in hours rather than days. Omnibus is the best software I’ve used, I’ve tested other well-known systems.
