Invercargill real time service launched

Posted 28 May 2015, by Chris Mein

The TrackABus real time service for Invercargill was launched to the public today with a front page article appearing in the Southland Express. Russell Pearson, the Invercargill City Council (ICC) roading manager, stated:

... We want to provide the best service we can. It is a great system to have and I am pretty excited about it.

The system runs in a fully automatic configuration that means the service operator does not need to manage the service on a daily basis. The provision of real time information has helped the operator manage their day to day operations whilst also allowing the ICC call centre to better answer customer queries about the BusSmart service.
