  • Description of the Project:
  • Swebus is Sweden's most punctual public transport, even during the winter. To let people know this, and to steal customers from the big national railroad company we launched a new discount system called The Swebus Train Switch.
    Sweden's ten biggest train stations were monitored and whenever a train was late the Swebus Train Switch site generated a discount ticket, free for anyone to collect.
    Each delayed minute equalled 1% discount. And if a train was canceled? Then the bus ticket was free.
