Efficient and sustainable public transport

10 October 2023

Transparent and clear communication with public transport users or optimising travel times and timetables. These are some of the numerous challenges in the transport sector where the Optibus software platform can contribute significantly to efficient business management.

Optibus is an established company as it operates in public transport in 35 countries and over 4,000 cities. The company aims to improve service and pursue sustainable policies, using the latest technological tools such as artificial intelligence and optimised algorithms. At Busworld, Optibus will be presenting its driver-depot management developed in collaboration with drivers. Intelligent charging of electric buses is also set for a breakthrough, says the software developer.

Optibus is a company backed by Volvo that serves companies with big names like Stagecoach, First Bus, Transdev, Arriva and Meta (Facebook). Last year, it was the first start-up within the public transport sector worth more than $1 billion. As a supporting network for three billion trips, Optibus can cut annual emissions by 11 million tonnes of CO2.
