Bus operator Anchersen has chosen to sign a contract with MultiQ for a complete communication solution for their buses. The order applies to 33 buses, operating in the Copenhagen area. The contract value is SEK 4 million over a contract duration of three years.
Anchersen will take over the operation of two bus lines in Copenhagen, line 350S and line 18. Line 18 will be one of the first two electric bus lines in Copenhagen. In public transport in Denmark, and the rest of the Nordic countries, there is an increased digitization for smarter and smoother traveling. Investments are made to increase the number of passengers.
Travel has become smarter and real-time traffic information has become increasingly important for a more flexible travel experience. MultiQ offers a complete IT solution with information for both passengers as well as between drivers and the transport management team.
“Anchersen is continuously improving the quality of the travel experience. Choosing MultiQ as a partner shows that we have a competitive offering to the market. We look forward to a successful partnership”, says Mads Henrik Hansen, CEO of MultiQ Denmark.
Many companies are now choosing to invest in intelligent communication solutions for a smarter society. Sydtrafik was recently awarded for its investment in outdoor displays where travelers get real-time information on departure and arrival times as well as updates on any traffic disruptions. Copenhagen’s bus route 5C, the busiest bus route in the Nordic region, uses a complete IT solution with information for both passengers as well as between drivers and the transport management team. Skånetrafiken in Sweden has long been a driving force in the digitization of public transport. During 2019, Skånetrafiken has made extensive investments in information displays at stations and stops. These and other projects have given MultiQ a stronger position in the Nordic public transport sector.
