The Slovak Lines bus carrier will introduce a new application that will put all its key systems under one roof. This means that the company's digital platform will connect a reservation system, new website, and new purchasing systems via the app and website, the TASR newswire reported.

Passengers will thus be able to receive push notifications about delays, changes, and even make a seat reservation. In the future, they may also be able to buy tickets for Bratislava's city transport and different city attractions.

System from Estonia

When Slovak Lines sought a partner to unify its systems, the main condition was operation of the system in real time, said the carrier's general manager Pavol Labant.

“We found a suitable system in Estonia after thorough analyses,” he added, as quoted by TASR. It is the Turnit firm that has become the Slovak bus company's partner.

Furthermore, the new digital system is said to connect the digital channels with non-digital ones, including the sale of tickets from drivers and ticket desks at the stations.

Simultaneously, all the data can be connected to digital boards on platforms and self-service kiosks, as reported by TASR.
