MONTREAL — The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) is in the final testing phase of a GPS tracking system, known as iBus, which will allow users to track buses in real-time to know when the next bus will arrive at a designated station, the Montreal Gazette reported.

The system was originally slated for 2014, but was delayed. STM said there have been some complications in getting the GPS system up and running because the agency has 25 different types of buses and technicians had to find the best spot on each bus to place the GPS trackers for optimal efficiency. The new rollout date is scheduled for the end of this year. For the full story, click here.
