Idea: GPS

Teresa Tensen over 5 years ago

Gps in the bus systems. Portland, Oregon has this in their buslines making it more efficient for riders to know if the bus will be later/early by accessing the location on their mobile app.

From what I understand, Capital Metro intends to implement automated vehicle location technology in 2015, coinciding with other upgrades to their buses already planned at that time. This will reach MetroRapid a bit sooner when those routes are introduced in 2014.

Hey Teresa,

We have met with some council members and have been trying to reach Capital Metro's staff to push this through. We actually finished the CapMetro bus tracking app (also have it for UT bus shuttles and other events) for real-time tracking (every minute). When we sent out an e-mail, they said it was going to be a bit hard to implement this, even when we offered 100 units completely free of charge. The app would also be free. Apparently they already have some GPS units installed but we have no idea what is slowing this down. We will keep pushing this and hope it will become a reality.

Such technology is already installed on MetroRail and MetroAccess and will be deployed with MetroRapid in 2014.  Soon after will be available on MetroBus.  See also:  https://capmetro.granicusideas.com/forums/fy2012-budget/ideas/real-time-wait-location-information

The app that shows where your bus/train is a great idea but not everybody has a smartphone. Is there a way to somehow incorporate something similair at the bus stops?
