Dubai improve bus routes by using Artificial Intelligence. The emirate is planning to revamp 150 routes used by more than 2,100 buses with machine learning algorithms.
Recently 30-day trial was conducted involving 10 routes identified significant efficiencies. The trial phase resulted in saving time that would be wasted on bus routes by 13.3 per cent.
“During a trial period, the RTA experimented on 10 routes where card data was employed to figure out all-day busy bus stops, stops used during peak hours, and rarely used stops,” said Ahmed Mahboub, executive director of smart services at RTA.
