Live Tracking Data: A lack of tracking possibilities providing locational data streamed in real – time and vehicle-tracking information collected and stored in a data repository hinders operational management, passenger information distribution and Monitoring & Compliance Auditing.
Fare Collection Methods: Current fare collection methods focus on providing one medium of payment and collection, usually by cash or by smartcard. This does not provide the commuter with options and convenience. Kiosk facilities and distributed cash collection methods make smart card fare collection much more expensive than cash.
Analysis and Reporting: Due to the lack of schedule data and live tracking data, as well as the closed nature of fare collection systems – there is very little data about public transport in our cities for internal planning and external reporting.
