About Us...

transportme™ is a patented and patent pending GPS/Ticketing/Reporting system founded, designed and owned by Nigel Tooth and his family.  As well as equity shareholder 'Appster', they have built a truly innovative and adaptable system used around Australia and New Zealand.

Both Nigel and their family business ‘Ryans Bus Service’, have been heavily involved in the transport industry for the past 7 decades.  From this experience and knowledge, came the start up company, transportme Pty Ltd.

Nigel is the current Operations Manager of Ryans Bus Service, and has been since 1998. He is also the Chairperson of the BusNSW North Coast Branch.

Nigel and his family realised the pain points that bus operators were experiencing with current ticketing, GPS and reporting.  So, rather than continue to watch this, they decided to do something about it.

In 2013, transportme™ was born.

How Does transportme™ work?

transportme™ uses our patented and patent pending iOS app, allowing an iPad Mini to be used as a ticketing machine.  The information such as driver login, routes, ticket types, fares, buses and so forth are all generated in your Content Management System (CMS)

Therefore, every ticket machine will have every piece of information sent over the cloud each time the transportme™ app is opened.  This ensures all information is completely up to date at all times.

Do I Have To Download Information From the iPads?

No.  Each and every time your drivers close their route, the information is sent over the cloud to your CMS.  You never have to go to the bus or the iPad to download the information.  Simple as that!  This means your reports can be generated quickly and will always be current.

Why Use an iPad and not an Android Tablet?

transportme™ opted to use Apple iPads to ensure there can only be 1 type of tablet used as a ticket machine.  This will reduce any bug issues, confusion with systems, and to ensure the team at transportme™ knows exactly what every contracted operator is using.

How Do I Print Tickets With An iPad?

transportme™ uses our exclusively distributed thermal printer that connects to the iPad via bluetooth.  This will then print tickets for your passengers, and also doubles as a smartcard reader!  Hence, if you ever decided to upgrade to the patented and patent pending transportme™ smartcards, you do not need to buy any further equipment.

So...What Benefits Will transportme™ Give Me?  Why Should I Invest in This System?

transportme™ can cover your reporting needs – at the press of a button.  You do not need to spend hours generating reports.  Multiple depots and buses are all linked into the one CMS – meaning you never have to download information from a specific bus in another location hundreds of kilometres away.  It all happens automatically, every day.

Our GPS location system is in real-time....all the time.  Not every 10 minutes, not every 5 minutes, not every minute.  We can tell you where your vehicle is within 7 seconds of its location – at all times!  Try and find a system that can beat that.

Oh...and by the way, we can also give this GPS information to your Passengers/Parents/School Children/Customers.  They can download the free ‘Transportme Passenger’ app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store and track your vehicle in real-time, all for free!

Ok – this all sounds too good to be true, so I’m guessing its going to be expensive to install?

No, it isn’t.  

transportme™ is approximately 1/3 the cost of traditional ticketing and GPS systems.

You are required to pay a one-off app/software purchase fee.  This fee is dependant on several factors, and Nigel will provide you with a quote for this.  This fee will cover your set up costs – as we can perform this via email/Skype/internet from our offices.

You then have the cost of your iPad Mini.  This is generally around $500, however there are several ways you can purchase these (including leasing) – and Telstra sometimes offer them as part of a contract.

The price of our transportme™ casing and printer cradle is $205 + gst per unit – however it is your decision if you want to purchase these.

The cost of the bluetooth is printer is approximately $410 + gst per unit.

Therefore the setup cost per ticket machine for printing is roughly $1100!

We DO NOT charge a yearly support and maintenance fee.  You are required to pay a monthly subscription fee which covers all your GPS/Ticketing/Cloud/Reporting costs.  This fee is dependant on the number of buses you are contracting transportme™ to.  This fee ranges from $35-$50 per bus per month + gst.

Please remember, with transportme™ not only are you receiving a GPS/Ticketing/Reporting system, but one that can give you instant and future messaging to all of your fleet, driver logins & compliance, the ability to use smartcards without the financial burden of purchasing extra infrastructure, paperless driver manuals, the ability to bridge your various systems and all of the normal benefits an iPad can offer.
