The first public bus transport network was created in the 19th century, yet the customer experience is practically the same over a hundred years later.
The team at TransportMe wanted to challenge the century old established behaviour and use technology to change the way pasengers and drivers interact over booking a ride, in the process make bus commuting easier, secure and more efficient for everyone.
Passengers can easily track where the buses are on their routes so they don’t have to waste time standing at stops, or miss possible appointments because of traffic delays.
Created in conjunction with Governments and Industry, Appster designed and develped TransportMe as an easy to use app allowing drivers and passengers to interact easily, book and pay for a ride with a smartphone, and avoid standing in queues.
Drivers can generate easy to understand reports for govermnets and transport organisations and save time and administration costs by fully automating the process.
TransportMe was designed to be intuitive and user friendly for passengers, drivers and operators alike.
TransportMe intelligently tracks the driver’s current location so bus drivers can perform transactions with passengers autonomously and less prone-to-error. Drivers can discover passenger bus stop traffic and know in advance when passengers wish to alight, helping to provide excellent customer service.
TransportMe’s infrastructure was built to support a large transport network seamlessly. Network Operators can track the location of hundreds of bus locations simultaneously within an accuracy of 10 meters, giving unprecedented insight into real-time operations.
Appster developed TransportMe robust enough to overcome cell tower data drops in Australian rural areas, providing an unparalleled experience for drivers and passengers alike. TransportMe saves time and money by generating real time compliance reports, reducing the burden of these otherwise bureaucratic procedures which can distract the Bus Industry from focusing on customer service.
