Bus Punctuality Mapping using GPS

Bus Punctuality Mapping using GPS

Basemap created a public transport punctuality management system for a County Council.  This cloud based system allowed real GPS bus stop/route arrival times to be logged into the system and compared against the timetabled arrival time.  The results could then be shown using intelligent charts and bus route mapping which broke down the best and worst performing stops and services.

The system’s functionality allowed the council to export their results into other software packages in order to evaluate local attributing factors using detailed Ordnance Survey mapping; for example, a timetabled arrival was being delayed due to the prohibitive layout of a junction, once this was highlighted, recommendations would be made to the appropriate departments within the council, or to operators for the amendment of timetables.
