The Israelis who want to teach the world about efficient public transport

Over a decade ago, Amos Haggiag and Eitan Yanovsky, were challenged by Amos’ father, a senior official at Israeli public transportation company, to try and solve difficulties in streamlining buses’ operations. They wouldn’t have guessed that the algorithm they developed will turn into a company worth hundreds millions of dollars, operating in over 500 cities with more than 250 employees. In a special interview with Globes, Optibus’ co-founders discuss the technology allowing bus companies to achieve optimal results with fewer buses, and less mileage and driving hours.
