Transportme™ are pleased to announce that we have executed a major contract with the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR).
We have now been officially contracted to implement the rollout of our Ticketing and Tracking Solution for all Rural and Regional School Buses across Queensland – totalling approximately 1200 vehicles.
The transportme™ solution will be utilised by 460 bus companies across Queensland, with 85,000 STAS eligible school students and 30,000 non STAS eligible school students tapping on and off with contactless SmartCards. This will allow significant safety improvements for both students and their families – allowing for contactless SmartCard usage for recording of patronage and payment of fares and real time tracking of the students and their school vehicles.
As well as providing a state of the art system for students – the transportme™ solution will also allow for public passengers to tap and pay with contactless credit cards and SmartCards to pay for bus fares across the network.
The contract will allow for a partnership approach between transportme™ and TMR, and we look forward to working closely with their team to ensure our solution achieves all of their goals and necessary outcomes.
Thank you to the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads for the opportunity to work with your team and we look forward to the impending rollout.
