FAQ

Q: Can I use my existing tracking device?+

In order to be compliant with the Bus Open Data Service, vehicle location updates need to be sent every 30 seconds or less.

We have found most tracking providers are unable to support this frequency for third-party integrations, which make many of them incompatible for compliance.

Our solution is a bespoke integration with a single tracking provider (Pinpointers) that is purpose-built for compliance.

The tracking device can be used as a general tracker as well, but doesn't necessarily need to replace your existing tracking if you are happy with your current vendor. It can work alongside it to help fulfil your legal obligations.

Q: Can you help submit our timetables and fares data too?+

This package solves the most complicated part of Bus Open Data - vehicle location data (AVL).

The Bus Open Data Service offers free tools to submit your own fare and timetable data.

If you are struggling with submission of other data, we can help put you in touch with consultants who are able to prepare and submit this data on your behalf.

Q: Can this package be used standalone?+

Yes! This package is available for use outright, or as an add-on to our Simple and Complete Packages.

Q: Is this only for use with school services?+

Whilst the ShuttleID system is designed primarily around home-to-school travel this package will also work well on smaller local services.
