TAP TSI Services Governance

TAP TSI Services Governance Association (TSGA)

The TAP TSI Services Governance Association (TSGA) was set up in December 2016 as a long-term governance structure with the aim to facilitate the exchange of data relating to timetables and fares in the European railway sector.
The association constitutes a key milestone towards fully implementing the technical specification for interoperability relating to the subsystem ‘telematics applications for passenger services’ (Regulation (EU) No 454/2011, “TAP TSI”) of the trans-European rail system.
The TSGA thereby acts as a regulatory-driven enabler for businesses to step further in the field of digitalisation.

The TAP TSI Regulation sets out common technical standards for the EU-wide exchange of rail transport data and is currently being implemented by the railway sector.
The TSGA will provide the regulatory services that are needed for railways to meet their obligations and for railways and third parties to enjoy their rights under the TAP TSI Regulation.

TAP retail implementation campaign

This TAP retail implementation campaign took place from 02/01 to 26/01/2018 and the scope was focused on reservation, ticketing, timetable and tariff basic parameters.
It shows a good level of maturity of the RUs and a more realistic picture through the usage of weighting factors.
