QRyde has implemented a fixed route annunciation, passenger counting by demographics and tracking system for Oxford University Transit (OleMiss.)
A number of additional technology upgrades to the system are planned over the course of the spring semester including the replacement of the NextBus app with the real-time QRyde app prior to this coming fall semester.
Each bus will be equipped with a tablet which will deliver real-time location and timing to riders. Current riders are only given estimated arrival times and can vary from stop to stop based on several outside factors.
QRyde will also offer features that will increase usability, including arrival alerts for riders who don’t want to spend more time than necessary at a bus shelter.
