Managing a large, multi-modal public transit network comes with complexity—so having a clear view of data and performance is essential.
A key goal for our client, an Australian public transit agency, was to create seamless journeys and simplified ticketing across its statewide network of trains, buses and ferries. netBI was adopted by the agency and its entire network of service providers.
The organisation was just beginning to roll out integrated smart ticketing and also required a system that would allow for a simple and quick generation of information needed for strategic planning, ministerial briefs, and to address service issues and customer complaints.
By working with netBI, the agency was able to quickly centralise and process various formats of data from six disparate ticketing systems (magnetic-stripe, paper-based, and smartcard) to report on patronage and trip level service performance.
netBI also helped the public transit agency to enrich ticketing data with reference attributes like schedules and arrival and departure records—enabling insights into the passenger journey, service loads, utilisation, revenue trends, and alignment between service delivery and schedule.
The agency continued to evolve how it leverages the netBI data platform to enhance its operations and reporting. For example, the organisation has used our solution to:
