TransLink, Queensland, Australia

NextBus’s first international project rollout included delivery of the NextBus solution to TransLink in Brisbane, Australia, which oversees 19 separate transit service operators.

Jacksonville Transportation Authority 

NextBus partnered with Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) to bring real-time passenger information to northern Florida. Following an initial pilot in 2013, the full system implementation encompassed 170 buses across 46 routes. After a quick installation, the system went live in late 2014. 

Live Operation

Our customizable solution allows you to select the management tools and customer touch points you need, no matter your vehicle fleet size. It provides passengers the information they need to remain on schedule — even if their bus or train isn’t.

On-board Equipment

GPS technology and a proprietary algorithm link data from the city’s various transit vehicles and agency management systems and send it to the NextBus service center. With its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform, the need for in-house equipment and support is decreased, reducing agency costs.
