PMS 1 Updates 2012
We welcome any feedback in relation to the system updates recently deployed. Please contact us with your comments at
In 2010 the RTP team in Pobal developed an on-line system (Performance Monitoring System - PMS) to assist with capturing and reporting on the required performance monitoring data for RTP.
RTP Groups are required to submit data relating to passengers such as age, gender, accessibility requirements and whether they are Free Travel Pass (FTP) holders. This information is required by Pobal to report to the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport on a monthly basis.
This information is used to provide evidence about the impact of the RTP in terms meeting passenger needs and addressing rural and social exclusion (particularly in relation to older people and people with disabilities).
The data is submitted to the Department on a monthly basis and is used to compile the annual report on the performance and impact of the programme. This information is also used as the basis for responses to parliamentary questions (PQs) and other information requests throughout the year.
