On Sunday, the 26th November, The B-Line was inaugurated in Sydney, Australia.
The B-Line is a brand new line of 40 double-decker buses servicing between the North Beaches and the city centre, while traveling over the famous Harbour Bridge and past the world renowned Opera House. This line is the first one in Sydney to be equipped with a real-time system where passengers are informed via Public Information Display (PID) onboard the buses as well as PIDs at the stop points. The real-time information is also exported to Google’s GTFS. The ambition is for Sydney and Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) to expand with more lines in the near future.
“It’s thrilling and exciting to have been trusted for this project, and I am extremely proud of our team for the work and effort provided so we could manage this project under such a short time. The customers’ response has been both professional and positive, so we are really looking forward to further business opportunities in Australia“,– says a gleeful Thomas OttossonCEO of Consat Telematics.
