Empowering public transport with Designium and Mitsubishi
Find out how Mitsubishi worked with Designium and HERE to create real-time visibility of bus networks in Japan and better serve the local community.
Creating a more transparent and easier-to-use bus network
Despite being a central region for tourist attractions, Aizu Bus passengers had to rely on timetables posted at stations that provided limited and static information. Passengers had no way of knowing where their bus was, the distance between stops, if a bus was delayed or if it had been canceled. Even the Aizu Bus fleet's operation manager had limited real-time information about where their buses were.
Real-time visibility for an improved passenger experience
After the introduction from Mitsubishi Corporation, Designium was able to build a bus operating system using the HERE Platform and made the switch to HERE Maps and APIs. The resulting HERE API can deliver dynamic visibility of bus status at any given time, including delays or seasonal and temporary changes to the service, allowing bus operators to announce updates to drivers who can then react quickly.
