Previously, passengers needed to get in endless queues to inquire about the arrival and departure time of a train or a bus. Thanks to the passenger information systems, all the information can be now acquired online. Passenger information systems provide in-transit connectivity to the passengers and real-time information. This offers transport service providers an edge over other service providers. Moreover, passenger information system and solutions offer several features such as weather forecast display, news broadcast, emergency communication, on-demand information and entertainment. These features attract a higher number of passengers and help generate more revenues. Development of 3G and 4G LTE communication technologies has stimulated the demand for the display of information on arrival, departure and cause of delay on smartphones and mobiles. It has also opened new avenues for mobile application developers.
Passenger Information Systems: Trends and Prospects
Digitalization has increased the demand for the global passenger information systems market. The number of smartphone users has gone up over the years. With improvements in data connectivity in terms of quality as well as costs, the prospects of a better market and stronger competition in the near future can be predicted. Another reason and a crucial factor for the growth of the market is the steep rise in urbanization, coupled with an increase in number of public transport facilities. Due to better public transport systems, a large volume of passengers are now opting to travel with public transport. Also, the hassle of parking and rising fuel prices are pushing a greater number of daily commuters to opt for public transport. As a result, in-transit connectivity and passenger information services are now attracting transport companies to up their game and increase their customer flow.
