In the UK we provide specialised transport for special educational needs pupils and Social Services staff in Bradford to schools, hospitals and care centres.
Our experience in Australia includes running over 500 buses and carrying 80,000 passengers a day for the Adelaide Bus Company. The services, fully incorpated into the Adelaide Metro public transport system, utilise an integrated ticketing system allowing customers to transfer between bus, train and trams.
Serco's experience in bus operations is very diverse and includes providing on demand and scheduled services for the RAF (Ministry of Defence).
Serco has recently been awarded the bus fleet management system for Glasgow City Council. This is a fully integrated system for management and operation of Glasgow's buses. The system monitors general traffic and bus operating conditions along the routes. Using the knowledge gained, the system provides priority for buses at traffic signals and specially configured bus proirity sites such as queue relocation sites.
In Australia Serco provides journey timetable and fare information for all modes of public transport in the South East region of Queensland. The system encompasses more than thirty operators and handles over 60,000 calls per month.
