Innovation and Telematic

Since innovation is an intrinsic part of the Brisa culture, the telematic equipment installed in the Brisa network is the result of constant research and adaptation to the needs of the activity.

This constant flow of information allows to provide a better customer service and maintain the conditions of circulation.

In addition to technical equipment, Brisa also has 71 vehicles that circulate in the Brisa network. The continuous communication of these vehicles and GPS control allows the CCO to make an effective distribution of resources.
