Cost-efficient SaaS Platforms Create Incremental Opportunities for Vendors

Software as a Service (SaaS) is increasingly becoming the new trend in modern transit systems. SaaS models have facilitated the introduction of subscription-based account, which helps a user to fetch information from the cloud. As such, the subscription economy has been exploding in the past couple of years and holds promising potentials in the passenger information system market. For instance, LIT Transit— a provider of mobility technology solutions, is increasing its efficacy in SaaS-based passenger information systems (PIS) to provide flexibility in transit management.

The passenger information system market is undergoing a revolution from hardware dependent systems to hardware independent software. Transport agencies are increasingly adopting SaaS platforms, owing to its advantages of constant innovations and cost efficiency. Many agencies have experienced a boost in their performance levels after the deployment of SaaS platforms.

Open Data Resources Deliver Real-time Information in U.K. Public Transport Industry

The passenger information system market is projected to advance at a robust CAGR of ~13% during the assessment period. This is evident, as transport agencies are harnessing the advantages of data in the public transport sector. As such, the public transport industry is pervasively becoming more digitalized. However, there is a lack of open and shared resources for data that adhere to privacy laws and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union. Hence, companies in the passenger information system market are increasing their R&D efforts to tap into opportunities in the Internet of Things (IoT) in order to collect and share data to the people in real time.

Transportation in London is leading the way for open data in the U.K. Transportation agencies are using predictive analytics to study data and use the data to counter problems before they occur.

Key Growth Drivers of Passenger Information System Market

  • Customer Inclination for Rich Experiences – Today’s commuters are highly demanding and seek enduring travel experiences. Real-time information about routes, connections, disruptions, etc., not only helps commuters in better planning and optimum utilization of time but also indicates a professional set up and good reputation of the transport service provider. Quality of service plays a pivotal role in influencing the commuters’ decision to opt for the same transport again. Providing real-time information to commuters is a win-win situation for both the transport service provider and commuters. This radical practice is driving the passenger information system market toward significant growth.
  • Rising Demand for Real-time Passenger Information Systems – The increasing demand for real-time passenger information systems for every mode of transport (rail, road, air, sea) is a key factor driving the market. Integration of the AVL system in public transportation systems help to provide real-time vehicle location to passengers so that they can analyze the arrival of public vehicles and manage their time accordingly.

Key Challenges Faced by Passenger Information System Market Players

  • Passenger information system installation is costly, as it requires an overhaul of the existing system. In most countries, railways and city bus services are initially controlled by the government. As governments worldwide prioritize on developing airports and metros, railways and buses often get low budgets/investments. Furthermore, considerable bureaucracy and paperwork at multiple levels slows down the decision making process impacting the adoption of new technologies, such as passenger information systems.
