Best Public Transportation Software

Cities and governmental institutions use public transportation software to manage operations, infrastructure, their environmental impact, and to ensure compliance with public transport regulations. Public transportation software manages timetables and ticketing, route planning, passenger safety and security, as well as maintenance for buses, trains, and other means of transportation. These tools help public transport companies track and improve the costs of their operations and maintenance, as well as the passenger satisfaction and comfort.

Since not all solutions offer a complete set of features and functions for front office, back office, and maintenance, some of them integrate with accounting software or maintenance software like CMMS. More advanced solutions offer features for passenger flow tracking and simulation. Sometimes POS functionality and terminals are also provided to facilitate the sale of tickets.

To qualify for inclusion in the Public Transportation category, a product must:

  • Provide geolocation tracking for vehicles which can be used for maintenance or route optimization
  • Create and manage timetables and share them with the public on the internet or through mobile apps
  • Define routes for public transport and provide the ability to change them when needed (eg: construction, natural phaenomena)
  • Include options for passengers to buy tickets online, on site, or on mobile devices
  • Allow personnel to sell tickets, passes, and other products or services
  • Track mileage and gas emissions for different means of transportation
  • Address special transportation needs for passengers
