Why do we love them?
Swiftly has created a big data platform designed to increase the performance and reliability of public transit networks that cities can actually afford. Swiftly’s data is 20% more accurate than existing solutions, costs up to 90% less to deploy, and results in a better user experience. Hate wondering where your bus is? So does Swiftly.
Tell me about the technology.
Swiftly’s solution has two components:
1. Swiftly Transitime – a real-time passenger information system; and
2. Swiftly Analytics – the industry’s first big data platform that analyzes vehicle and rider data to help improve operational efficiencies of transit agencies.
