DSB


26 mar 2013 // danish railways
Jeg kommenterer ofte DSB (og trafikselskaber i øvrigt) for deres komplicerede, uigennemsigtige og utidssvarende systemer til at håndtere kundernes (som de kaldes) transport og især betaling for denne. Forskellige korttyper, abonnementstyper, rabatordninger, særtilbud og zoneinddeling gør rejsen til en prislabyrint, hvor end ikke det automatiske udregningssystem i rejsekortet kan komme frem til den billigste pris. Eller rettere: jeg føler mig ikke sikker på

Apps for traffic information can be useful, but not all the way

8 OKT 2011 // navigation / public space / danish railways / apps
I know it sounds a bit paradoxical. Usually I call to recognize randomness as a condition of life. But when it comes to traffic and road out in the public domain, I freak info. The more data available, the better, it's just like that. And when it comes to public transport ... How long time before the next train, do I sprint, wander, or do I have just the time to slip into at the bookstore. Is the train I'm in late, okay then, but do I have time to knit another row, or to think a new thought.
I do not ask for the train (necessarily) on time, but on reliable intelligence so I can dispose of my available time. It may seem like a small thing, but that’s how details work of daily life.

Don’t buy a train ticket with this app

Unfinished, ill-considered apps or apps that serve the market better than the use off it. If Apple has a sometimes paranoid restrictive approach to the formalities regarding an app you want to get into the App Store, they may have a comparable little interest in that the app works well. Fortunately, one could say, that should be the developer's task. But not everyone can not live up to this task, which also counts for DSB and the DSB Ticket app.

Vesterport st

Claim the real mayonnaise. Use Tungsram lightbulbs. Political incorrect ads are being revealed at Vesterport st. Vesterport st (copenhagen – and I know it may not be a station, see “Jyllingevej is no station”) is being cleaned up. And these old ads are reveiled.

Jyllingevej is no station

1 DEC 2009 // public space / danish railways
Oh yeah, noo, it’s a road, right ... Jyllinge[road]? Well, but everybody familiar with the S-trains in Copenhagen, especially between Ballerup and Vanløse, knows that Jyllingevej is the last station before Vanløse. And now it is no station. Well then, Jyllingevej is the last station (if I may insist) before Vanløse, and thus of some interest.
Since this very morning a pour fellow has thrown himself out in front of a train. So:
“Herlev. Due to a collision on Vanløse has all train been stopped between Herlev and Vanlose. This train doesn't go any further. There will be busses instead.”
