Trapeze and SPT Achieve Huge MyBus Online Booking Growth
SPT MyBus online bookings increase by more than 350% in under a year
The PASS-Web integration enables users to book their own MyBus door to door bus services via the Internet.
Since its roll-out in January 2012, usage of the facility has increased almost month-on-month, with usage in November 2012 up to more than 1,600 booked trips – a 361% increase.
John Knox, Demand Response Transport Team Leader at SPT explains the benefits the system has brought: "We now have more people using the service regularly,” he reveals. “Customers appreciate the freedom to manage their bookings, and for SPT it improves customer service because it takes some strain off the phone lines, enabling people to get through easier when they call.”
Trapeze Group supplies the PASS-Web system which powers SPT’s MyBus. Peter Bell, Managing Director of Trapeze in the UK, said: "SPT was one of the earliest adopters of our PASS software in the UK. I am delighted that they are gaining further efficiencies from the addition of PASS-Web. This helps reduce workload on call takers by giving users of the MyBus service users an alternative booking approach."
