First Transit announces three technology partnerships

Posted on October 3, 2017

In line with First Transit’s leading position in innovation, the company announces partnerships with three technology solution companies: Optibus, Bishop Peak Technology, and Geotab.

The partnerships improve the quality of information available to help transit customers manage and enhance their operations through real-time insight into vehicle and driver performance.

Optibus uses advanced data analytics to reduce the time required to develop and improve the reliability of schedules while optimizing driver and vehicle hours.

Bishop Peak Technology gives a comprehensive data-driven system to manage service making immediate schedule changes to alleviate disruption. It serves as foundational technology to push notifications to riders’ mobile devices, transit websites and available smart signage at transit stops.

Geotab provides a complete view of vehicle information, trip history, vehicle idle times, and facilitates dispatching capabilities within the Bishop Peak application.

“Partnerships like these allow First Transit to provide our customers access to integrated, actionable data to improve operational efficiency and the passengers’ experience,” says Christina Bock, director, operations support, at First Transit. “Our customers are looking for solutions. As transit technology experts and consultants, we want to provide those solutions.”

First Transit has started to install these technologies at locations across North America.
