About the Company

Optibus revolutionizes public transportation scheduling and operations by introducing Optibize™ – an innovative, super-fast optimization technology, which is based on new patent pending algorithms. Optibize™ transforms legacy offline planning and problem handling into an interactive real-time process, thus elevating public transportation companies to operate much more efficiently, reduce cost, and deliver better passenger service. Optibus OnSchedule™, powered by Optibize™, plans crew and vehicle assignments using Interactive Schedule Optimization (ISO) methodology. Schedulers compare and evaluate different alternatives, immediately choosing the one that is most efficient and appropriate. Optibus OnTime™, also powered by Optibize™, lets control room operators respond in real time to unplanned incidents or changes, preventing negative implications on passenger service and cost.

The Optibus solution, all on the cloud, is delivered in a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, therefore no initial investment, long-term commitment, or local IT expertise are needed. The solution is in use by major bus companies of all sizes, reducing their OPEX by as much as 15%.

Vision

The transportation market is on the verge of a major transformation with the introduction of autonomous driving and incorporating the use of Big Data. Public transportation will lead the way in adopting these technologies, and Optibus, with its proprietary Optibize™ technology, is uniquely positioned to perform dynamic scheduling of public transportation vehicles in real time. Our future Dynamic Scheduling System(DSS) will play a key role of enabling this transformation, by connecting the multiple real-time information sources, together with Big Data analytics, and then dynamically adjusting the vehicles schedules to provide superior passenger experience and optimal use of resources.
Optibus technology, already field proven in multiple continents, will be the engine of the flexible public transportation, which will attract passengers to a much better public transportation system, thus accommodating the needs of the future urban society.
