The BLISS of Bus Travel

The BLISS of Bus Travel

For many years, the use of in-seat entertainment systems has been limited to air travel; however, as mobile devices and ubiquitous internet access continue to redefine expectations, travelers are demanding these services in all modes of transportation.

In-Seat_Screens_IMAGESTo help bus manufacturers and operators meet these demands, we have launched the VIA BLISS (Bus Line In-Seat System) platform, a flexible Android-based turnkey solution for creating an immersive travel environment that transforms the passenger experience by providing them with personalized entertainment, information, and communication services throughout their journey.

Designed to withstand the harshest of road conditions, the VIA BLISS platform combines a choice of all-in-one 7” and 10.1” Android display systems with a Video-On-Demand server and networking system enabling passengers to watch TV and movies, listen to music, surf the Internet, and play interactive games from the comfort of their bus seat. To ensure there is not a moment of downtime, it also features a Device Management System (DMS) that enables operators to remotely monitor, control, and update content and devices over-the-air (OTA).

The VIA BLISS Platform has already been successfully deployed by leading bus operators in Taiwan and Turkey, helping them to improve passenger satisfaction and increase demand for their long-distance travel routes. With its scalable design and flexible development environment, the platform also provides operators with the potential to further boost their competitiveness and generate additional revenue streams by creating new applications and services such as destination experience programs in partnership with leading hotels, restaurants, museums, and entertainment venues.In-Bus_System_Architecture
