Guelph Transit will be the first in Canada, to use the Toronto based Grey Island Systems International Inc. global positioning system (Nextbus) to track buses. The software will relay the information via the internet, to bus stops, cell phones and computers. Customers will be able find out in real time the arrival of the next three buses. Guelph Transit also uses Live Map and Google Map with excellent results.
On April 5, 2006 my blog featured a similar post about Go Transit’s plans for use of GPS.
