In 2013, there were 10.7 billion taken using public transit. From buses to heavy rail to light rail, ridership during the period increased. While using public transportation is a great way to commute and travel, it also offers increased personal safety benefits, according to the 2014 article in the Journal of Public Transportation. Those who use public transit experience exponentially lower crime rates and collisions per trip, mile and hour than those who use a personal vehicle.
As the American Public Transit Association has taken steps to improve security and training programs, public transit mobile WiFi also has a role. This infographic reviews ridership trends and explains how SinglePoint’s SingleTrack and Moovbox systems allow transit agencies use mobile WiFi and public transit WiFi to monitor and track vehicles, and communicate with passengers.
