Optibus has been chosen for more than 300 cities and drives some of the most complex and large-scale transit operations worldwide, Optibus aims to help improve quality of service and efficiency, reduce costs, streamline operations and reduce congestion and emissions in cities. 

The company’s focus is on providing software that offers transit agencies real-time situational awareness as well as optimization suggestions for things like routes, timing and asset management.

Transit agencies and operators have access to large amounts of data that can be valuable in planning and operating mass transit. Data from ticketing systems, mobility data and more can be used to offer services that are better tied to demand and real-life operations. Optibus digests  this information and offers possible remedies to streamline operations. 

Optibus’ work fulfills the UN Sustainable Development Goal of “Sustainable Cities and Communities” and “Responsible Consumption and Production” by harnassing the power of artificial intelligence to reduce congestion and reduce emissions as well as promoting resource and energy efficiency.
