INNOVATING FOR THE FUTURE OF MASS TRANSIT & FLEET MANAGEMENT
October 04, 2021
THE TREND POST COVID 19
Globally, property pricing has always been tied to essential amenities. As agents often say “Location. Location. Location.” Up in the list of coveted ‘should haves’ is ‘public transport nearest to me’. The ‘near me’ phenomena means that people are increasingly demanding easily accessible efficient services from their mass transit providers.

Even with COVID 19’s triggered migration out of city centres (where public transportation is often better connected) to suburbs, properties closer to public transportation still top buyers’ and renters’ requirements. This means that public transport has a future way beyond COVID 19. Current data already shows positive heat maps around mass transit areas. Decision makers are of course interested in the trend as they seek to optimise their offer. The answers they know, lie in analysing past activities against new trends. Historical and real data merged into one platform can start drawing a clear picture.
OPTIMISING TRANSPORTATION SERVICES WITH DATA
Arlas.city is designed to help authorities and operators to have a global view of their offer and make necessary changes backed by data. As the near me trend continues, a great combination of key user indicators; frequency, accessibility and reliability offers services that ensures riders get as close as possible to their destination, and in the least amount of time. These indicators are already set in arlas.city. But that’s not all, there is room to add as many datasets as required to expand the analytics for even more nuanced analysis.’

ITS CONGRESS IN HAMBURG
The need for better systems often draws the mobility sector together to explore innovative ways to move the industry forward. One such event is the ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) Congress which is one of the biggest occasions that brings together the mobility industry to discuss smart mobility and the digitalisation of transport. The event takes either as a regional or global assembly. This year, Hamburg will be hosting the world congress from the 11th to the 15th of October. It is a great platform to promote innovative solutions for sustainable mobility. The participants, who are also drawn from the mass transit sector, are invited to ‘Experience Future Mobility Now’. The event offers various activities; exhibitions, academic track, plenary sessions, thematic conferences and live demonstrations.
ITS Congress Hamburg 2021 already has over 300 exhibitors confirmed, and expects over 15,000 visitors invested in the transit industry from all over the world, including public transport authorities and operators who will be seeking solutions for smarter, cleaner and greener mobility.
