RapidKL GPS bus tracking system

Wow KL bus system now goes high tech, with RapidKL GPS bus tracking system!

In the last few months, national transport company Syarikat Prasarana Nasional Bhd has been setting up a Fleet Tracking System for RapidKL’s 1,450 buses.

The system would see an initial 59 LED panels installed at the company’s major transit hubs in the near future.

What are these does is the LED panel will tell which bus are serving and also showing the estimated time for the bus to come.

Zohari say “If there is a traffic jam choking (the route) upstream, it will be automatically calculated (on the panel).”

“If passengers see that their bus is arriving in 30 minutes, they might (have time) to go to a nearby mamak stall and have teh-tarik, rather than standing there not knowing what time the bus will be arriving,”

According to RapidKL, the technology behind this system is a GPS (Global Positioning System) unit, that is installed inside each of the bus.

RapidKL GPS bus tracking system is expected to be fully up and running by mid-April.
