PMPML and Google Cloud team to build an intelligent transit management system for live tracking buses


Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Ltd (PPML), the public transport bus service provider for the twin cities of Pune & Pimpri Chinchwad and PMRDA region in India has announced a collaboration with Google Cloud to build an Intelligent transit management system and feed system to track buses live on Google Maps.
PMPML operates 371 routes around the Pune Metropolitan Region including 117 Rainbow BRT routes that ply on the seven bus rapid transit corridors and this technology will enable commuters to easily find the bus in real time and make their journey easier.

PMPML has hardware installed on their buses which are capable of sending real-time data. The partnership will enable transition to a globally accepted specification GTFS (General Transit Feed Specification GTFS) for publishing the transit information; provide insights to their management team on different performance aspects of fleet; ingest real-time data from all applicable buses from the OBU (on board unit) system installed on the PMPML buses. They will further validate the data for GTFS field-values. Then the data will get fed to the Google Maps Partner Dashboard for a complete GTFS validation. Once published on Google Maps, Live Transit Updates service will allow commuters to track buses in real time on Google Maps.
The system will be further extended to include the features of Transport Analytics including asset tracking, predictive maintenance and incident response in the next phase to reduce the operational cost and increase revenue.
Google Cloud will work through its premier partner Niveus Solutions Pvt Ltd and others for this engagement.
“We are thrilled to work so closely with the PMPML team. I believe this technology has the power to be replicated across different cities and states in India and make life easier for commuters.” said Bikram Singh Bedi, Managing Director at Google Cloud India.
