Starting life on the roads of Birmingham in 1931, it now has a new lease of life after a restoration that cost £500,000. Visit the stand and take a look at this spectacular bus in its glory.

eBook – Building an efficient bus operation in today’s world

efficiency of the bus operation

These are times of rapid and unpredictable change for bus operators. Running a bus network in a pandemic while addressing the issues of driver shortages, road congestion and the need to plan for decarbonisation is challenging.

To thrive in a changing world, bus operations need to be as efficient as possible. This eBook provides a guide on how to build a sustainable operation.

efficiency of the bus operation

A bus operation is a complex chain made up of many links which fall into three broad categories: planning the network, delivering the service and performance review. 

To achieve optimum efficiency, each link needs to work in harmony with the others. The difficulty is that maximising the efficiency of one link can have a negative impact on another. 

Discover how bus operators can get this balance right and be ready for whatever the future holds.

Webinar – Set up timetable data correctly in BODS for the festive period

Set up data correctly for BODS

Christmas isn’t all fun and chocolate. In the schedules office it might even be considered a dirty word.

Why? Well it’s the time of year when bus companies find themselves having to create multiple bespoke sets of timetables and schedules, sometimes a different one each day over a 10-day period. This year there is the added requirement to supply compliant BODS data too.

Set up data correctly for BODS

The webinar is aimed at existing OmniTIMES and BODS Exporter customers to learn more about how to set up data correctly in BODS over the festive and New Year period.
