Swiftly Metronome is the first transit operations toolkit that lets you understand current service conditions, prioritize fixes, and send out service adjustments -- in real time.
Swiftly Metronome ensures your operations staff have visibility over your entire fixed-route fleet and can manage operations in real time, regardless of the hardware on board today or in the future.
Get an up-to-the-second picture of early, late, and bunched vehicles in your system
Get a precise, real-time picture of the location and spacing of every vehicle in your network, updated every few seconds
Find early and late vehicles and sort by the biggest offenders to mitigate bunching and gapping in real time
Highlight missing trips and potential layover issues with an intuitive, laddered route visualization
An intuitive onboard display that runs on commodity Android and iOS tablets
Provide operators with real-time feedback to mitigate on-time performance issues
Send operators service corrections - like short turns or holds - to reduce bunching and gapping
Make drivers happy by removing the guesswork from their jobs and improving passenger satisfaction in the process
Dynamically manage scheduled service changes and unforeseen disruptions
Hold vehicles, cancel blocks, schedule detours, and close stops without leaving the Swiftly platform
See changes to service automatically reflected in vehicle predictions with algorithms that calculate the impact to riders
Communicate service changes across departments in real time and create an easily accessible source of truth
Connect your APC units directly to the internet for real-time crowding and easy-to-access historical data
Avoid data pitfalls like occupancy drift and on/off imbalance by pushing APC counts directly to the industry’s smartest transit data platform
Download data into Excel, Tableau, PowerBI, or whatever data software you use
Empower passengers, customer service, and operations with the most up-to-date information about vehicle crowding levels
“Swiftly gives us the ability to see where the buses are on their routes and take action. If they are right on top of one another, we can space them out easier. You can easily look at the live ladder and say, ‘Ok these two need to be spaced out.’ It broadcasts the information so you can act on it.”
Swiftly Metronome allows you to separate your transit software from your onboard hardware. Fine-tune your software tools without the need to rip and replace hardware from your entire vehicle fleet.
Swiftly Metronome is part of the Open Transit Initiative, a project led by Swiftly and a coalition of like-minded partners who have committed to common data standards and cross-vendor compatibility.
Swiftly’s cloud infrastructure and subscription model simplify how you build your transit data stack. Choose only the products you need, access them from anywhere, and use them with the hardware of your choice.
