WebTech to supply Northern Calif. with NextBus

Posted on March 11, 2010

WebTech Wireless Inc., a provider of vehicle fleet location-based services (LBS) and telematics technology, announced that Amador Transit of Sutter Creek, Calif., became the latest customer of its NextBus Real-Time Passenger Information Service (RTPIS). The sale covers a full NextBus implementation and three years of service, including hosting fees.

 

The NextBus contract outfits Amador Transit’s entire fleet with NextBus GPS location devices and uses NextBus patented technology that predicts real-time bus arrival information. NextBus will also install roadside LED digital bus stop displays, and a large LCD transit center sign that will bring this information to riders.

 

The NextBus RTPIS also gives users access to accurate, real-time bus arrival information via their cell phones, Smartphones or the Internet. The NextBus system includes the ability to sign up for automatic email or text alerts. These alerts can be sent minutes before the bus is predicted to arrive — based upon its actual location — giving riders time to meet their bus: the system reduces wait times.

 

NextBus will also implement its telephone information system. This lets riders use any phone to key in the code for their bus stop and hear an automated voice tell them when the next buses are predicted to arrive. GPS-enabled Smartphones will also give riders the location of the nearest bus stop.
