What is the Train Information System (TIS)?

The Train Information System (TIS, formerly EUROPTIRAILS) is a web-based application that supports international train management by delivering real-time train data concerning international passenger and freight trains. The relevant data is obtained directly from the Infrastructure Managers’ systems.

     TIS Management
The application was developed by a consortium of 6 Infrastructure Managers (DB Netz, ÖBB, ProRail, RFF, RFI and SBB) and co-financed by the European Commission. In 2007 RailNetEurope (RNE) took over the management of TIS, and started developing and improving the application.
