Nobina and Telia in cooperation for smarter bus routes
Nobina and Telia are cooperating on a new project aimed at making it possible to develop solutions for smarter travel and public transport in the future. Using anonymised mobile data, analysis is made of how people move to enable Nobina to better adapt its bus traffic and create new solutions according to passengers’ needs. The first results, with data from Södertörn, showed, for example, where a bike bus could be of optimal use, but also provided understanding of travel routes and destinations – including outside the public transport system. Data and new statistics also confirm the trend that increasing numbers of people are working from home on Fridays.
Troms Fylkestrafikk and Nobina Norway in agreement not to utilise full extension option
Troms Fylkestrafikk has decided not to utilise the full extension option with Nobina Norway for bus services in Tromsö. The extension that could have stretched to a maximum of three years will thus be one and a half years. The extension will come into force in February 2018 and services will be operated by Nobina until 31 July 2019. The agreement comprises 127 scheduled buses.
