Dubai’s RTA uses AI to map bus routes according to usage

( In a bid to improve passenger experience and cut down on unnecessary emissions, the machine learning algorithms map routes depending on peak time usage and bus stop popularity.


Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced the start of an artificial intelligence (AI) trial on its buses. The pilot is to use machine learning algorithms to plan bus routes dependant on their degree of use throughout the day, as part of the authority’s endeavour to employ technologies to save time and effort and improve the customer experience in transportation.
