In the infrastructure of a modern city, travel by buses and shuttles has an important role. Shuttle transport allows to reach the desired point quicker than municipal transport. In addition, it is cheaper than a taxi or chauffeur-limousine service.
Shuttle transport is especially advantageous when it comes to transfers from the airport to the city and back. Laying a railway line to the airport is not a quick process. In addition, due to limited mobility the underground transport is unlikely to be able to completely replace the shuttle transport.
Bus transportation has changed a lot lately. First of all, they have become more environmentally friendly. Their engines became safer for nature with less CO2 emissions. Moreover, experiments are being conducted in order to manufacture buses running on alternative energy sources. However, the environmental factor remains relevant.
New approaches to bus transportation dictate the need for new solutions in the management of the fleet of buses.
UTC-Software provides a dispatcher software for managing buses and shuttles. Thanks to our ecosystem, it is possible to record, communicate, alert the driver and record time when the driver arrives at one or another bus-stop with the GPS coordinates.
Determining a clear arrival time at the stopping point will allow you to identify those who are often late, or alternatively, to emphasize the punctuality of a driver. The software can keep track of and report autonomously that there was a delay, that the driver is late, or that he arrived on time at the bus-stop. This will allow to plan and assign the drivers very effectively.
For shuttle services we have a special solution - shuttle booking. For example, a client needs to get from the city to the airport. He can use the underground, which, however, is not always possible and convenient. Alternatively, he can call a taxi, but it might be too expensive for him.
A way out for him would be a shuttle ride. The client can reserve a seat in the shuttle at the desired time. To do this, he opens his App on iOS or Android, enters the shuttle service section, selects a place in the shuttle and pays for it with a credit card.
There are various options for building these algorithms depending on the wishes of the taxi service or chauffeur-limousine service. Reservation of seats, payment, confirmation when the client gets into transport - we are ready to provide all these solutions to our customers today.
UTC-Software will be your faithful companion and partner in the development and expansion of your transport business. Are you committed to new solutions and aiming for success? Then we are on the same wavelength!
