6 Major Changes to Healthcare Post-COVID

The COVID-19 pandemic rapidly changed the course of health care’s future, and from an innovation standpoint, for the better.

Where’s My Bus? Universities use Machine Learning to Predict Bus Departures

Knowing and providing the exact time a bus will depart from any given stop is probably the most important information a university transit operator can provide its riders. Getting to where they need to go – on time, and with predictability, also makes the whole transit experience, that much better. And given that it's not as easy as you may think to predict this timing, we’re providing our university clients with some serious technology to become "on-time-performance" heroes, time after time. Advances in computer technology and widespread availability of data, have now led to the invention of more accurate algorithms, powered by machine learning.

Universities Save Money and Get Better OTP with Bus Interlining

Universities Save Money and Get Better OTP with Bus Interlining

What is interlining?

Interlining is a common practice in the transit industry that combines two or more independent routes that arrive and depart from a common terminal. For example, a bus can arrive at a stop on a university campus on one route and after a brief layover, leave on a different route. When the bus leaves on its new route, the head sign and automated announcements get updates seamlessly. Interlining eliminates extended periods of down time where a bus would just be parked and out of service.
