What is Passenger Counting Solution?

Track Real-Time Passenger Traffic and Optimize Your Fleet

Automated passenger counting is an advanced high-tech solution that monitors and counts passengers getting on and off buses, trains, and other means of public transport. Passenger counting data is provided by people counting sensors installed in the vehicle doors. By counting the in and out numbers of passengers per station, transportation companies can optimize their fleet and maximize passenger comfort.

Powered by AI and machine learning technologies, our Ultima sensors detect the passengers instantly and accurately as they pass through the doorway. We offer real-time passenger counting data at over 99% accuracy.

Benefits Of Passenger Counting

Unlock the Power of Passenger Data
benefits - get real time data

Real-time data of passenger occupancy

Real-time processing of passenger data allows transportation companies to optimize their fleets by using live vehicle and station occupancy information. Real-time passenger data can detect objects like bicycles and wheelchairs and it won’t count them as passengers. V-Count sensors can also avoid counting u-turns and people standing around the doors, thus providing 99.9% accurate real-time passenger counting data.

benefits - increase conversion

Increased passenger satisfaction

Tracking passenger occupancy in real-time, companies can adjust fleet composition to meet passenger needs no matter what the weather conditions are, and improve passenger comfort. Real-time passenger occupancy data lets companies arrange additional vehicles to meet passenger needs making sure that no passenger is left behind even in bad weather conditions and improve passenger comfort and safety.

benefits - manage occupancy

Optimization of Fleets and Routes

Passenger counting data and trends allows public transportation companies to optimize their fleet and vehicle capacities according to passenger volume. With the help of V-Count’s passenger counting solution, municipalities and transportation companies can figure out how many buses or train units will be deployed on which lines and at which hours.

benefits - improve marketing

Optimization of spaces for passenger baggage

Our passenger counting solution uses the latest AI technology and can distinguish passengers from baggage, and other objects like wheelchairs, bicycles, etc. With this hi-tech passenger counting service, the space required for passenger items in vehicles can also be optimized. Accurate object counting data in vehicles enables transportation companies to plan and optimize the space needed for such passenger goods.

benefits - optimize resource

Reduced costs

Passenger counting systems are accurate, and they reduce expenses all around for any company that's in the transportation industry. V-Count sensors collect and provide valuable data on transport performance, allowing cost reduction based on route and peak hour performance.

FAQ about Passenger Counting

How does the passenger counting solution work?faq selection arrow

The V-Count Ultima AI and Ultima Go sensors are installed over the vehicle doors to monitor the in and out numbers of passengers. The sensors anonymously detect and count the heads of people entering and exiting the buses, trains, or ships. This passenger counting data is then sent to the V-Count Business intelligence platform, where you can easily access and view the passenger traffic. You can use the data to optimize your fleets, control your ticketing and payment systems, improve passenger comfort and prepare precise reports for in-vehicle advertising.

How many sensors does a transportation company need per vehicle for passenger counting?faq selection arrow

The number of sensors needed for passenger counting depends on the number of entries in each vehicle. We would be pleased to advise you on the estimated number of sensors required. Contact us for more details.
