Sustainable Mass Abuja Rapid Transit (SMART) is an easier, efficient and seamless means of utilizing the city’s public mass transit bus service. Abuja Urban Mass Transit has over 500 buses conveying an estimated 1000 passengers daily. The proposed project will equip 100 buses with devices to generate and transmit real time data and information between drivers, commuters, city transport officials and the general public. The project targets increased ridership and revenue generation from the combination of multiple methods of electronic payments, bus routing, location tracking as well as online bus schedule service.
- It is difficult to Track the physical location of the Buses.
- Provision of instant ticketing for more effective payment collection
- It is difficult to collect data (such as passenger counts).
- Lack Capacity and manpower on maintenance and simple troubleshooting of installed systems
- Bus routes poorly connected as a result of which efficiency is not measurable
- Feasibility studies (needs assessment) and planning
- Deploy automatic payment system on the bus
- Install tracking device and camera for transit control
- Develop ASUMTS Live suite tool (web portal and mobile app)
- Install passenger counter device.
- Install Automated stop announcement
- Capacity Building
