SUMBA project, at the very beginning of 2021, brought a great gift for the public transport passengers in the city of Šiauliai (Lithuania) – the mobile application “ŠiauliaiBUS”.
The project partner – Šiauliai City Municipality Administration – has been actively looking for an attractive solution for the city residents and guests to make their journeys in public transportation better planned and easier. Therefore, a new mobile application “ŠiauliaiBUS” was launched and introduced to citizens on 4 January 2021.
The mobile application offers a possibility of purchasing a local bus ticket using a convenient contactless payment method – QR code scanning – in the bus. In addition, it contains online bus schedules, as well as the on-time bus tracking option. The journey planner is included as a separate section in the mobile application; therefore, a passenger can plan a full journey within boundaries of the city from the starting point to the final destination.
The mobile application has a great popularity among city residents and guests. Its introduction directly adds-up to the improvement of the public transportation system in Šiauliai.
