Orlando trolley adds NextBus technology

Posted on February 8, 2012

Orlando, Fla.-based I-Ride Trolley Service, which serves the city's tourist corridor, introduced a new fleet of 15 trolleys equipped with a state-of-the-art automated vehicle location system (AVLS) known as NextBus. With Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking, NextBus technology provides predicted vehicle arrival information and live maps to visitors.

I- Ride Trolley information is available via the Internet, smartphones and text messaging. Beginning this spring, each of the 105 Trolley stops will provide a QR tag that visitors will be able to scan for access to the resort area's mobile website where the NextTrolley information is available.

In addition, the new trolley equipment includes security cameras on each vehicle, automatic passenger counters, automated stop announcement system, LED destination signage, and LED exterior accent lighting visible day and night.

The I-Ride Trolley service is owned by the International Drive Transit & Improvement District and is operated, under contract, by the Mears Transportation Group in Orlando, FL.
