Under the Ph.D. program at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Telematics Applications in Public Transport, the lack of a complete management information model that will effectively integrate traditionally static and dynamic public transport operations was identified. This article provides an overview of the management information model MIDAS—the result of a six-year research and development effort aimed at fulfilling this gap. The article puts particular emphasis on the methodology applied and the techniques employed for development of the model. MIDAS contains three types of interrelated models: data model, functional model, and dynamic model. These models are the basis for the design and development of information systems for the planning and management of public transport operations.
