Network-Wide Solutions for Bus Operations

Transport authorities and bus operators are constantly striving to deliver better passenger services, at lower costs, with fewer resources, while meeting safety and performance benchmarks.

To achieve the goal of reducing congestion by increasing ridership, bus organisations can implement new technologies that will meet passenger needs and fulfil business objectives.

Bus companies face challenges like insecure funding, higher service thresholds, and more stringent reporting requirements. An integrated technology solution can deliver multiple benefits - helping bus authorities and operators deliver seamless passenger experiences and encouraging greater use of public transport bus services.

Trapeze’s advanced technology offers local support and is backed by proven global industry experience, giving your business the edge to adapt, respond and succeed.

Simon Reed, Head of Technology and Data at Transport for London, explains how highly accurate passenger information is key to everything TfL does.
