The right IT systems give transport service providers the added benefit of reliable, fail-safe performance, alongside opportunities to respond swiftly to incidents, as well as utilising comprehensive reporting and statistics functions.
Several players in the public transport sector have already experienced how IT solutions have helped them reach their goals. Read more about these experiences below.

Bremer Straßenbahn AG (BSAG) is the municipal transport company operating in the north German city of Bremen. Out of more than 2,150 employees, some 1,500 hold vocational driving licences/passenger transport licences.
