In line with the government’s plans to modernize public bus transportation, PLDT recently rolled out a series digital solutions that are suited to benefit bus operators through efficient tracking of their transport units, on-board security surveillance, monitoring real-time sales through an e-ticketing system, and wifi connectivity inside the bus premises for passengers to enjoy.
Called the PLDT SME Nation SmartBus project, this offering helps answer the need for bus operators to comply with the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) circular that requires bus operators to install a global positioning system (GPS) monitoring devices in their vehicles to help track its movements and promote commuter safety.
“Provincial and city buses form a major part of the lives of daily commuters, whether as a means of going to work or reaching different parts of the city. Apart from running a bus franchise amid the perennial heavy traffic in our thoroughfares, bus operators also need to prioritize and ensure passengers’ safety,” said PLDT VP and Head of SME Nation Mitch Locsin. “Our SmartBus Solution Suite offers innovative products that help solve bus operators’ day-to-day issues from security to keeping their buses in check, while passengers also get to enjoy their trip with the connectivity on-board.”
The SmartBus project provides bus operators the following solutions to implement:
Smart Biz LTE
These solutions can be availed in varying packages that suits different needs of bus operators. Operators can choose from the Smart Tracker Plans, Smart Cam Plans, Smart E-Ticketing, or even combine solutions to design their own plan for low monthly rates.
“With these solutions, bus operators can really maximize their operations and save on costs, while giving their passengers greater security and convenience to make traveling through the metro a better and enjoyable experience,” said Locsin.
