Success of app-based buses

The Oxford Mail reports on the successful first year of an app-based pilot scheme launched by Oxford Bus Company, PickMeUp, which allows passengers to summon buses within 15 minutes using an app.

Passengers are matched with others looking to do similar journeys.

The fleet, backed by parent company, the Go-Ahead Group, has reportedly beaten all forecasts, providing more than 140,000 rides over the past year to 25,000 passengers who have downloaded the app and registered to travel across Oxford. It now carries an average of nearly 4,000 passengers a week.
