Case Study

Company: Transport for NSW

Solutions: SMS Keyword Notifications

Sydney is a busy city with a large interconnected transportation system. They rely on multiple technology platforms to keep their transportation systems running smoothly. Bus services in congested cities have a global reputation for being the most unreliable source of transportation since it’s almost impossible to predict the flow of traffic. Thus, making it hard for you to get from point A to point B on schedule. To help commuters answer this unreliability question, they have implemented a real-time SMS service for all their bus stops.
