Whatever your vehicle type, your customers are now expecting to find your schedules and realtime status online.

Our GTFS Editor/GTFS Builder, realtime status updates, vehicle tracking and online ticketing can be used for all vehicle types.

  • GTFS Editor/GTFS Builder: A GTFS file allows your schedule to be communicated to numerous search engines, online maps, apps and journey planners
  • GTFS Real-time: GTFS-Realtime provides you with a way to communicate immediately any unexpected delays, detours and alterations. With GTFS-Realtime you can be pro-active with information and manage passenger, public relations and social media impacts.
  • Vehicle Tracking: Sometimes the key thing a waiting passenger needs to know is that their ride is approaching. An unfamiliar setting becomes less "risky" if they can virtually see their vehicle is just around the corner. Alternatively, if they have misjudged their timing and missed their ride, vehicle tracking prevents passengers waiting for a vehicle that has already gone and the opportunity for them to make alternative plans.
  • Online Ticketing: Online Ticketing gives passengers and you the certainty of prepaid bookings. It also allows you to refocus your team away from basic sales and onto higher value tasks.
