GPS systems have been fitted to 25 of DTC’s AC buses
First it was air-conditioned buses, and now the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) is installing Global Positioning Systems (GPS) on its buses. These GPS systems, already installed in 25 DTC buses, feed details like current location and expected arrival time at various bus stops along the buses’ respective routes, to a central server.
Commuters with cellphones can access a Web-based public information system to find out the exact location of the bus they’re waiting for, and also find out the expected arrival time at the particular bus stop which they happen to be waiting at.
After its AC buses, DTC plans to install GPS systems on its non-AC low-floor buses, and some private buses in Delhi are also expected to get this technology.
