Business challenge

Millions of people around the world cannot imagine everyday commute without public transportation. In fact, buses and coaches account for 8% of all passenger on-land transport in the EU according to Eurostat. Moreover, currently, there are almost 900 000 busses in circulation, as was estimated by the European Automobile Manufacturer Association. With global policies directed towards more sustainable use of resources public transport is an area of a significant focus. Passengers, especially in urban areas, are encouraged to switch from using their vehicles that usually provide transportation for a single person to using provided public transport infrastructure. To make public bus transportation more attractive to passengers, most bus operators are offering free Wi-Fi hotspots for browsing, and there is increasing popularity in on-board content sharing services. From an integration and operation perspective – there is a challenge to select reliable and easy to integrate connectivity products and manage them easily from a remote location using robust and intuitive software.
