The Management System

It has never been easier to get timely and accurate content to your passengers at every bus stop across your network

With Papercast’s data management platform you can effortlessly provide real-time service arrivals as well as additional travel information such as service schedules, maps and timetable alterations. Offering instant GTFS, GTFS RT and SIRI integration, you can also enjoy the freedom of adding custom content apps such as local news, weather, events and tourist information.

When it comes to information, your passengers want to know EXACTLY when the next bus will arrive

Traffic congestion results in unpredictable and inconsistent journey times, especially at peak times. The question is how do you provide accurate estimated time of arrival data that reduces passenger uncertainty and increases perceived service reliability? The answer is Better ETA – an advanced analytics platform that normalises CAD/AVL data to improve the accuracy of bus arrival predictions.
