The Optibus Platform

Blocking, runcutting and rostering

Super Power, Super Speeds

Our algorithms and technology are truly powerful. Powerful enough for super-fast results. It takes us minutes (or fractions of minutes) to evaluate complex scenarios that used to take hours or even days. With speed at your side, you can run many “what-if” scenarios in minutes, with ample time to evaluate all options.  You can even do this daily, responding to changes with optimal vehicle and crew schedules. 

Real Business Impact

Using its powerful technology, Optibus models your transportation network (rules and preferences) at the most granular level. We can model any rule and preference, exactly the way it is. This doesn’t just generate a quality schedule, it also highlights the business key performance indicators and cost data you need to make optimal schedule and cost decisions.

In fact, our customers have used our platform to generate significant cost savings of up to 15%, with better on-time performance. 

Modern and Web-based

Optibus is a software-as-a-service platform, which means no IT effort, no hardware and continuous feature improvements.

With a modern user interface that’s easy to use, training won’t take long and work will immediately become more efficient.

Most importantly, our customers are up and running in several weeks’ time, not months.

Robust and Scalable

Optibus was built to support the world’s most complex transit operations. The platform can model any type of rule, union agreement, regulatory requirement etc., across thousands of vehicles and drivers. Our customers use Optibus in large cities and even entire countries. This not only provides an accurate and actionable plan; it also saves scheduler time and effort and frees them to work on other areas in the business where their expertise is required.

Artificial Intelligence for On-Time Performance

Better on-time-performance is required to grow ridership and provide better service. Optibus leverages artificial intelligence and historical data to predict and analyze on-time performance, enabling operators to significantly improve their offering, resulting in better operations, on time. Use of OnTime prevents delays at the outset and precisely shows the cost and service impact of schedule changes.

Making Data Useful

Transit agencies and operators have access to huge amounts of data that can be incredibly valuable in planning and operating mass transit. Data from ticketing systems, mobility data, AVL and more can be used to offer services that are better tied to demand and real-life operations, with the potential of enabling new types of transit services.

Strong Analytics & Reporting for Data-Driven Decisions

On top of the built-in business key performance indicators, Optibus analytics lets schedulers and operations executives compare scenarios, publish reports or answer complex questions, turning your operation into a smart, data-driven business.
