The Age has an interesting story on the Victorians giving up on GPS driven real time tracking of buses.
“Given the age of the technology, the review indicated that progressing with the tracking system in its current format is not cost effective,” a spokeswoman said. “PTV has suspended the rollout of the system and is investigating newer technologies.”
One wonders how this will impact the long awaited and long promised real time bus tracking on the ACTION network.
I had a go on the buses last week and with the google maps integration it was mostly fantastic. The only hiccup was a bus leaving a minute early, but another was along literally two minutes later.
