NextBus represents a breakthrough in the way that people use mass transit.
San Francisco-based NextBus are experts in the development and implementation of Real-Time Passenger Information Systems, used by dozens of Transit Agencies, Universities and other transit operators across North America.
Our NextBus solution provides transit authorities with a robust, reliable, and cost-effective way to manage fleets and communicate directly with passengers.
By using satellite technology, NextBus accurately tracks transit vehicles on their routes, and provides passengers and managers of public transit, shuttles, and trains with real-time vehicle arrival information - not just bus schedules.
Estimated arrival times are available over the Internet, via wireless devices such as PDA's and Smartphones; usings SMS texting on cell phones through IVR (interactive voice response); and at electronic signs at bus stops. The City of San Francisco alone has 813 NextBus LED signs installed at virtually every bus shelter.
NextBus also provides additional web-based services to its customers, including Automatic Voice Announcements and Automatic Passenger Counters. All of the NextBus technologies enable transit operators to run more efficient and productive systems.
NextBus was designed to keep you on schedule even if your bus or train isn't. With actual arrival information, updated at regular intervals, any uncertainty associated with public transportation is eliminated.
