An efficient public transportation system often indicates how well a city is performing. That is why more and more city public transportation companies nowadays invest in different technologies in order to achieve maximum efficiency in their fleets and provide their customers – the commuters – with a reliable, convenient, and safe ride.
One of the technological tools being used by many public transportation companies these days is the real-time tracking apps. This system used to be only accessible to large companies, but as years pass by, it has become more sophisticated yet flexible, and can now be deployed on smartphones. Such developments have made the technology more viable for small public transport operators looking to streamline their daily operations.
Public transport companies such as taxis and city buses that have started to implement real-time tracking solution into their operations have achieved higher efficiency that they have never experienced before. More importantly, they are now able to provide a significant improvement in the daily commute of their customers.
There are a lot of compelling reasons why public transport companies should integrate real-time tracking in their business. To explain these benefits, here are the key takeaways from the infographic below from MyTrackee:
- It enables real-time monitoring. If the bus is running behind schedule, the dispatcher can provide a better route or guide the driver to adjust their driving speed.
- It helps optimize bus capacity. Real-time location tracking allows the commuters to know the current location of the bus, allowing to have a hint of the ETA of the bus on the bus stops.
- Helps ensure fuel efficiency by providing the dispatcher with data about the routes and identify which ones are fuel-efficient and which ones are not.
- It ensures customer satisfaction and profitable operations.
