Public Transport: Journeys that Matter

Public Transport brings a vital service to communities, providing safe, affordable, convenient transportation to urban centers and rural areas. Choosing the right technology partner is crucial to meeting these goals.

Making Every Journey Matter

Transport authorities and operators are under constant pressure to deliver growth in passenger numbers and ridership, promote greater staff and passenger safety, to develop new and improved services that enhance the customer experience, and in an increasingly integrated transport environment, to do this using the same or fewer resources.

A key component to this is having the right communications system in place – one that provides the capacity to handle growing and diverse voice and critical communication needs, integrates and streamlines on board vehicle systems to improve operational efficiency and empowers the workforce, wherever they are, to deliver exceptional levels of customer service.

Public Transport Industry Challenges

Public transport organizations face a myriad of challenges when it comes to ensuring passenger and staff safety, having a reliable communications infrastructure, ensuring customer satisfaction and maintaining service reliability. Growing populations are increasingly placing demands on transport providers to maintain the best possible services in terms of speed, reliability, flexibility and comfort.

Passengers want to use public transit that will provide a reliable and more efficient way to travel. Transport operators therefore need a reliable communications infrastructure that supports the services that drive customer loyalty and increase ridership and revenue. Tait has identified these challenges and developed solutions to suit.
