Automatic Passenger Counting trial on our buses

New technology on our vehicles

We are trialling Automatic Passenger Counting (APC) technology on one of our vehicles.  The bus (484) now has a screen displaying the number of seats currently available on the top deck.

This technology uses scanners to detect the number of customers getting on and off the bus to provide real time passenger figures.

If the trial is successful, we’ll be considering the use of this technology across our fleet to assist other aspects of our business including Scheduling and Operational Infrastructure, and for ways to provide real time occupancy information via our App and Destination Screen equipment for staff and customers.

Look out for the 'counter screen' on the panel beside the driver.
