Who are we?

We are Rise Digital Media Ltd, the talented team of digital technology professionals behind the BusHub Mobility Platform. 

Based in the heart of London's Tech City, we have crafted and refined our mobility platform to provide a complete solution for transport operators who need the flexibility and responsiveness of a software-as-a-service product to take their business forward.

We are committed disrupters in the public transport market with a determination to bring about a step change in the affordability and availability of high quality digital communications for transport operators.

Our Mission

To provide significantly improved passenger experiences across all digital touch-points and at an affordable price point for operators.

We do this by working with brands, affiliates, operators and other key stakeholders within the passenger transport industry to relentlessly research, innovate, trail and pilot ideas that are both affordable and positively disruptive.

Our Vision

Provide a fully integrated, multi-channel, digital content platform for deployment to Mobile Apps, the Web and OnBoard. 

We build innovative and reliable products, services and systems that are part-funded through careful integration of advertising networks and affiliate marketing schemes. Relevant location-based content is delivered through the various digital channels (onboard, in-app, ticketing, and web-based), which make up our digital asset portfolio to achieve maximum efficiencies.
