Idox Transport's Stand Manager is a class leading stand management system to facilitate smooth throughput of buses at the bus terminal and to ensure optimal utilisation of the available space. 

The end-to-end process of stand allocation is carried out automatically, and the truly dynamic nature of the solution helps to deliver maximum operational efficiency, improves user experience and leads to better utilisation of resources enabling more capacity at smaller sites as well as less space at new sites.

In order to drive stand allocation efficiently, Stand Manager operates a comprehensive business logic, which utilises pre-defined schedule data and stand preference information together to assign buses arriving at the terminal, to the available platforms, correlating their service/line numbers and expected time of arrival and departure.

Key benefits

  • Improves utilisation of the terminal space up to 70%
  • Improves convenience to commuters and drivers by providing accurate real-time information and stand allocation information
  • Helps to better manage crowd flow at the terminal
