Public and individual transport

The module allows to manage, among other things:

  • city card-integrated tolling (SOP)
  • transport infrastructure (ITS)
  • dynamic passenger information (SDIP)

It processes and analyzes online data from vehicles and GPS, as well as information from traffic supervision and drivers. It allows for effective real-time response to events in the urban transport system – failures, accidents, delays. It contributes to improving the transport system’s efficiency and reducing maintenance costs, as well as increasing the comfort of users.


Key elements of the solution::



The solution allows each user to create an account in the system, which contains information about the entitlements – tickets purchased, discounts and history of rides. It works online and all data is collected in the central system. It enables the use of many different, convertible passenger identifiers, from dedicated proximity cards (e.g. city cards), through mobile applications, NFC devices, QR codes to bank proximity cards (EMV).

Compliant with standards

SThe system is compliant with the standards of payment organizations: MTT for VISA and PAYG for Mastercard to handle payments in public transport. This ensures the necessary speed, high security and an optimal settlement model.

Flexible fees

The system uses contactless payment cards, which allows the fare to be collected according to the exact time or distance travelled by the passenger. At the end of the day, it selects the most profitable ticket and the corresponding charge from the payment card. For example, the passenger will be charged with a day ticket if it is more cost-effective than a single ticket.

Information in one place

Thanks to mobile applications and the web portal, the passenger has a convenient and full insight into their data, such as entitlements, discounts, transaction history. It also provides intuitive and quick access to complaints and customer service. In addition, the system enables to plan a journey and purchase a ticket for a journey carried out by different carriers and different means of transport (bus, tram, train).





Benefits for carriers

The system supports the handling of processes such as e.g. settlements related to the division of revenues from sold tickets between the entities which organized the transport and the handling of reliefs and discounts. It also facilitates keeping records of staff work and rolling stock assignment to the courses resulting from the dynamic timetable, as well as their monitoring. Additionally, it allows for efficient and reliable ticket control with the possibility of immediate collection of additional fees during the control.

Intelligent bus station – Rzeszów



The system helps to reduce traffic congestion at bus stops, while increasing safety and comfort of use. It uses CCTV cameras and advanced algorithms, thanks to which it constantly monitors and sends reports about which vehicles park at the stops and for how long, and whether the maximum stopover times are respected. The information obtained in this way helps convince carriers to improve ticketing methods and eliminate the use of stop bays for parking.

Paid parking zones

Metropolis.ISPP is a comprehensive solution for urban Paid Parking Zones. It uses advanced analytics and images from surveillance cameras, making it possible to detect occupancy with an accuracy of single parking spaces and an effectiveness of over 99%. It is also resistant to changing weather conditions.

Tailored to your needs

The system combines the advantages of solutions based on video analysis, inductive sensors and a mobile application that allows navigation to a free space and payment for parking. It is a hybrid solution that can be efficiently adapted to the requirements of individual zones, which are often based on different technologies and have different options for installing detection devices.

Mobile application for drivers

The application presents the current status of occupied parking spaces in the zone and guides the driver to the nearest available space in the location selected by the driver. It also allows for the convenient payment of cashless parking fees, thanks to which the users do not have to look for a parking meter.

Less traffic and cleaner air

The application has a citizen reporting module which facilitates communication with city services. The system provides accurate data and reports to facilitate the monitoring and management of the zone, and thanks to improvements for the drivers, it shortens the time of searching for free space, which reduces the traffic intensity and the amount of emitted fumes.

City Card

The module enables managing the City Card system in a registered or bearer variant. It is a key element of providing city services, ensuring security and efficiency to the city and convenience to the users. It supports two types of system architecture:

Card-Based – the city card is a carrier of public transport entitlements (tickets, points, IPE), powered by a prepaid model.

ID Based – each user has an account in the system and the secure ID can be stored on a city card, payment card, NFC device or mobile app. Access to services is billed on a post-paid model.

An indispensable element of the system are dedicated mobile applications and web portals, through which residents have friendly access to their accounts and full insight into their entitlements and transaction history.

Environmental quality measurement

The module enables acquisition, analysis and presentation of data on factors responsible for the formation of smog in agglomerations.

They are collected from Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, such as weather stations and many sensors measuring noise, light intensity or soil moisture. The data is supplemented with time and location stamps, which allows to create spatial analyses and maps of smog, noise or CO2 emissions, as well as to obtain information on trends and regressions, allowing to predict the development of the situation in the city.

It provides many tools for in-depth analyses and supports the city’s strategy for preventing and combating smog, excessive noise and carbon dioxide emissions. It allows to control harmful factors and contributes to their reduction, thus increasing the comfort of life of citizens.

Variable message signs

The module enables the management of information presented on electronic boards located in urban space – stops, stations or inside public transport vehicles.

In addition, the boards may, in selected groups of public transport vehicles, present information to passengers on actual travel times, expected delays or disruptions.

The central management of the network of boards supports the planning and implementation of a coherent information policy in the city. If necessary, it also makes it possible to quickly reach the public with the messages.

Video monitoring

The module enables presentation and analysis of data from city video surveillance. It ensures automatic detection of threats and unwanted events and monitoring of operating parameters of individual devices e.g. cameras, sensors, vending machines, their collection and subsequent analysis. It also allows for easy integration with the intelligent lighting subsystem.

The multidimensional analysis of surveillance data enables the planning of the city’s security strategy, creation of a map of selected threats and allows for an ongoing response to incidents and events. It is an excellent tool for preventing and combating dangerous phenomena, thus contributing to the increased feeling of safety of residents.

Intelligent lighting

The module allows the management of the lighting zone, analysis and presentation of key indicators related to power consumption, light intensity, infrastructure reliability.

It ensures:

  • effective monitoring of lighting operation,
  • remote management of lighting elements,
  • collecting other parameters from sensors installed on lighting elements (cameras, weather stations).

The use of the system allows for significant financial savings related to the operation of modern lighting zones in the city. In turn, the use of data analytics translates into budget optimization and improved comfort of life in the city.

Metropolis Tourist Guide

The mobile application Tourist Guide Metropolis makes it possible to present the city’s attractions to visitors from a different angle than classic tourist guides.

It uses beacons, which are small bluetooth transmitters that are managed through the Metropolis platform. It allows to intuitively add new beacons, change their location and manage the content sent to the mobile application. An additional module – Parking – will direct the user to a parking zone, and the Incidents module will make it possible to report an event or a failure.

The use of the mobile application makes it possible to provide an innovative and engaging attraction for tourists and inhabitants, thanks to which they can get to know the most interesting places on the city map.
