London buses get technology link-up

LONDON’S 8,000 strong bus fleet has completed an upgrade which ensures that every vehicle has the iBus 'next stop' announcement facility.  With the system passengers know exactly where their bus is and what the next stop and final destination will be.  It is very effective for both those with hearing or sight difficulties and has also proved useful for passengers concentrating on reading whilst on a bus.  There should be no excuse for missing a stop.  iBus uses a combination of technologies, including satellite tracking and GPS data transfer that can pinpoint the precise location of all of London’s buses.  It also provides improved radio communications for drivers and allows bus controllers to improve performance and reliability. www.iBus.com
