Intelligent Transportation System for Kochi
Kochi is all set to welcome an intelligent transportation system. The installation of GPS and finalisation of passenger information system for around 1,000 private buses will be in place by month-end, for their integration with the Kochi metro and ferries.
Besides, GPS equipment helps in tracking of buses that do not operate the scheduled trips and identify buses which halt unnecessarily at bus stops and instances of over-speeding. The primary purpose will be to keep passengers informed of the location of buses on each route.
The readying of GPS and passenger information system will be followed by the introduction of journey planner and an app that will provide a wide choice of multimodal commuting options to people, furthering the cause of public transport.
