Real-time transport information has been rolled-out across Adelaide’s transport system. The Real-time passenger information system will serve Adelaide Metro with a data set that covers 7,650 bus stops, tram spots and train stations. “Real-Time arrival information uses satellite tracking installed on all vehicles as part of our very successful Metrocard ticketing project, to predict when the next service will arrive based on speed and its last reported location,” said the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) Chief Executive, Rod Hook. The data will be available to access on PC, Smartphones and tablets through the Adelaide Metro website. In 2012, Transport for NSW released real-time GPS data from its Public Transport Information Priority System, allowing third party developers to turn it into apps for commuters to predict arrival times for the State’s public buses.
