Transportation Technology

(Smart Passenger 1.0)


The incorporation of technology for automatically charging and assisting in the control of public transport was a key element of the modernization of Ciudad Azteca. UTL, the transportation planning arm of Grupo PRODI led by Florencia Serrania, designed and adapted the technology, named the Smart Passenger system, and included the following features:

Global Positioning System (GPS) units in the vehicles also allow the operators to gather additional data, which once processed by UTL, provides information on route performance. UTL also provides technical and operational advice. The GPS also provides safety benefits, allowing vehicles to be located quickly in case of robberies.
