Optibus – Powering Core Mass Transport Operations

The Future of Mass Transit. Today.

Quickly generate multiple scenarios with powerful fixed-route planning and scheduling for mass transit.

Optibus is a cloud-based artificial intelligence platform that brings much-needed innovation to the essential mobility mode at the heart of our cities: public transportation.

Optibus leverages a robust combination of artificial intelligence, advanced optimization algorithms and distributed cloud computing to make public transportation smarter, better and more efficient – and ultimately nourish freedom of movement and sustainable cities.

A cloud-native SaaS company founded in 2014, Optibus powers complex transit operations in over 450 cities around the world, planning and scheduling the movement of vehicles and drivers to improve the quality and reliability of transit service and make operations more efficient.

Optibus has been recognized by the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer (2020) and by Gartner as a Cool Vendor (2018). It is headquartered in Tel Aviv and has offices in New York, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, London and São Paulo.

The Optibus Platform – End to End Mass Transit Planning and Scheduling for Fixed Routes

Our algorithms and technology are truly powerful. Powerful enough for super-fast results. It takes minutes (or fractions of minutes) to create and evaluate complex scenarios that used to take hours or even days. With speed at your side, you can run many “what-if” scenarios in minutes, with ample time to evaluate all options.  You can even do this daily, responding to changes in your fixed routes with optimal vehicle and crew schedules .

In fact, Optibus can uniquely perform both vehicle optimization (blocking) and driver optimization (run cutting) at the same time, delivering better optimization results and saving time.

  • Modern and web-based
  • Robust and scalable
  • Strong analytics and reporting for data-driven decisions
  • Artificial intelligence for on-time performance

Planning for Mass Transit – Create Efficient Routes and Timetables

Using Optibus, you can easily import data and begin route planning or modifications with unprecedented ease and accuracy, from maps to satellite and street views, with an integrated timetable that builds rapidly and is validated. Optibus Planning is integrated with scheduling and rosters, ensuring quick work on a holistic and cloud-native platform that reduces error and improves output.

Route planning:

  • Quick, visual and seamless
  • Brining data to life with the geospatial suite
  • Rapid scenario creation

Timetables:

  • Get business visibility
  • Better plans = better scheduling

Vehicle and Crew Scheduling – Blocking and Runcutting for Better Operations and Lower Costs

Optibus uses advanced optimization algorithms and machine learning to help the world’s leading transit providers better plan and run mass transit.

Our disruptive technology makes bus scheduling so much easier. It drives some of the most complex and large-scale transit operations worldwide, improving quality of service, efficiency, and streamlining operations. We plan and schedule the movements of every driver and vehicle, discover the best option and reduce costs.

  • Super speeds
  • High quality
  • Optimization all at once

Rostering – Ensure Driver Satisfaction, Control Overtime and Workloads

Optibus brings its super speed optimization to rostering, saving excessive manual work and allowing you to meet your business goals. The ability to optimize rosters quickly – in seconds or minutes – makes for better outcomes for drivers and the transit operation as a whole.

Easily set the rules and constraints that reflect your needs – from weekly route familiarity, day off patterns, overtime, guaranteed time, rest time between shifts and more.

  • Overtime control and quality work for drivers
  • Quick and easy
  • Roster groups and rotating rosters

On-Time – Automatically Generate Running Times

Use artificial intelligence to improve the reliability of your service – and its appeal to riders.

Prior to Optibus, on-time performance was guesstimated, using averages of historical performance, rules of thumb and surveying techniques. This did not give mass transit providers the control they need over the passenger experience and over the transit network as a whole.

Optibus’ technology, using artificial intelligence and advanced algorithms, takes the guesswork out of on-time performance. It allows mass transit providers to simply and easily create plans and schedules that improve on-time performance, with an advance understanding of the resulting costs and requirements.

  • Predict on-time performance
  • Generate running times
