Public transport can use Nexus to combine asset data (bus stops, tram, train or metro stations or passenger pickup locations) with asset locations of other transportation companies operating in the concession area, emergency services locations, population densities and scheduled or ongoing city-wide construction works. It is also possible to integrate weather data, road usage statistics, social media feeds and customer service reports to get a complete picture of everyday operations. Combined with concert locations, local events and festivals provides insight as to where passengers come from and where they might want to go to.
Nexus can help to answer important questions that pop up throughout an organization on a daily basis: which neighbourhoods, streets and households are served by a certain bus stop? How quickly can emergency services reach transport routes and stations in case of an incident?
Bike and car sharing
How long does it take to reach any part of a city from a certain bike or car sharing station? Which stations are full, and which ones empty? Where in the city are the biking lanes? What would be a good location for future stations? StellaSpark Nexus can present all this information to anyone within an organisation that benefits from it, all through a secure web portal. With standardized calculations, like the shortest-path algorithm, Nexus can show with address-level detail which areas are currently underserved. Realtime traffic information (public transport punctuality and road congestion) can be included to gain insight to the overall performance of mixed-mode commuting.
