Posted on April 9, 2009

The city of Sudbury,Ontario selected Nova Bus to retrofit their current bus fleet with the ITS4mobility Intelligent Transportation System (ITS.)

 

The system will then be factory-installed on subsequent Nova LFS vehicles delivered as part of a multi-year agreement, which extends to 2011.

 

The ITS4mobility system provides multiple communication and data processing functions; Sudbury’s configuration will include next-stop vocal and visual announcements.

 

Vehicles will be equipped with GPS, for real-time location and schedule information, and text messaging for two-way communication. The system also includes a diagnostic system that facilitates defect identification for enhanced productivity.
