Autonomous vehicles may be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of artificial intelligence in transportation, but the technology can also be used to provide much better public transportation in cities around the world, Optibus CEO Amos Haggiag said at the Bus2Bus 2019 conference in Berlin.

Artificial intelligence can already predict bus reliability, by using troves of data to determine how likely a bus is to leave its point of origin and arrive at its destination on time.

This information can improve transportation planning, since operators are then able to adjust the schedule to improve their buses’ on-time performance.
