NEW DELHI: It would soon be possible for Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) to track the movement of its 4,000 odd buses and passengers might also be able to locate, in real time, the bus they want to board.
The transport corporation will be floating a tender shortly for the installation of Global Positioning System (GPS) in all its 3,944 buses. According to sources in Delhi government’s transport department, DTC is also going to come up with a call centre from where real time movement of all its buses would be tracked.
There are also plans to come up with a mobile application for commuters so that they can find out the available buses from their location to their destination.Even though DTC buses are equipped with GPS Device China, most of them are non-functional at the moment. The location and movement of DTC buses was supposed to be tracked by Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System (DIMTS), for which it has been billing DTC since 2010, but it has failed to provide real time data to DTC, a transport department official said.
DTC will now install GPS devices in its buses itself and the decision was finalised in a meeting chaired by transport minister Kailash Gahlot on Tuesday. In the meeting, it was decided that DTC would go for ‘cost model’, in which the estimated cost of these devices would be first devised and then an approval from the DTC board would be taken, before going ahead with floating the tender.”The monitoring of data from GPS devices in DTC buses was being done by DIMTS but the result was not satisfactory. As a result, DIMTS was given a notice of termination a month ago and the agreement has now been terminated,” a transport department official said. “DTC is now free to install GPS devices in its buses on its own. It will set up a call centre to track movement of buses and the modalities of operation of this control room would now be worked out.” With the new Wireless GPS For Car, DTC would hopefully be able to track its buses better and pass on the information to its commuters. With real time monitoring of buses becoming possible, it might also be able to properly rationalise its routes.
