Bus Back Better

This article first appeared in the Bus-News magazine Issue 1, October 2021

Flowbird, the bus ticketing and payments specialist, has launched a new bus technology package that will help operators transform the travel experience for customers… and fully participate in a vibrant future.

The company’s ‘Bus Back Better’ offer ticks all the boxes for contactless payments and capped ticketing set out by the Department for Transport in its vision for the future of bus travel.

The Flowbird package not only offers easier, safer transactions for passengers but also strongly positions bus operators to participate in the enhanced partnerships with local transport authorities that will be so important to the future viability of providers of bus services.

The new Flowbird package includes a driver console, contactless cEMV, capped fares capability, BODS compliance and ITSO certification, along with cloud hosted back-office software and a long warranty. In addition, flexible payment terms, low transaction fees and monthly charges make this offer attractive to large and small bus operators.

High on the list of priorities for the DfT’s bus strategy are:

  • Simpler bus fares with daily price caps
  • Better service integration and ticketing across all transport modes
  • Contactless payment on all buses

“Besides meeting government requirements, the new solution offers straightforward integration with other applications such as passenger apps and m-ticketing, as well as validators for ‘touch on touch off’ – perfectly preparing operators for the new era of fare payments and wider mobility systems,” said Alistair Aitken, Business Development Executive at Flowbird.

The package also provides a pathway to Flowbird’s bus-oriented mobility hub – which is available for operators and local transport authorities – opening up new retailing opportunities and ‘on demand’ service provision as the wider transport sector moves towards greater multi-modal integration.

Bus transport will play an even greater role in getting people out of cars on to sustainable transport – and bus operators can be confident that this package will provide them with a reliable solution today and a future-ready platform for tomorrow.
