Transport for Wales is working on a bus network driven by AI and big data as part of its pilot scheme.

The CEOs of Transport for Wales and City Swift attended the 36th British-Irish Council Summit in Cardiff, along with Irish Prime Minister Micheál Martin and Wales’ first Minister Mark Drakeford.
James Price, CEO of Transport for Wales, said:
“This pilot scheme helps people in Wales improve their bus services and encourages people to modal shift from using private cars to sustainable public transport, which is key to tackling climate change. It will help. “
City Swift CEO Brian O’Rourke said there is much to learn from big data about changing trends and how best to plan and shape bus services as the pandemic eases.
“Transport for Wales has taken a positive step by adopting data and AI in a smart and innovative way to improve travel time and reliability and improve the in-flight experience for passengers,” he said. Said.
Mark Drakeford said the Welsh government has set a goal of 45% of travel in sustainable mode by 2040.
