Top Benefits of Real-Time Tracking for Public Transport [Infographic]
It is often said that the efficiency of public transport is an indication of the country’s or city’s current performance. Not only access to efficient and reliable public transportation plays a significant role in ensuring racial, economic, and social equality, but it is also one of the keys for cities to thrive and grow for the long haul.
That is why more and more city public transportation companies these days leverage the power of technology to achieve maximum efficiency and provide the commuters with reliable, convenient, and safe transportation services.
One of the modern technology being utilized by many public transport operators these days is the GPS technology. Over the past recent years, the GPS technology has evolved from dedicated in-car accessory only to GPS in smartphones. Such developments have made the technology more viable for small public transport operators looking to streamline their daily operations.
Cities and public transport companies such as taxis and city buses that have started to implement GPS tracking solution into their system have achieved efficiency that they are never able to experience before. Most importantly, they were able to make a significant impact on the most important aspect of their business – their customers.
There exist many compelling reasons for public transport companies to integrate real-time location tracking in their business. To explain these benefits, here are the key takeaways from the infographic below from MyTrackee:
- 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.
- 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.
- Ensure customer satisfaction and profitable operations.
