Wash. State riders to benefit from AVL, GPS mapping

Posted on December 12, 2011

PULLMAN, Wash. — Riders on Pullman Transit, including Washington State University staff, students and faculty, will be able to know precise bus locations, thanks to a new automated vehicle locator (AVL) system that uses a real-time locator along with GPS mapping, according to WSU News.

When the AVL system is fully integrated, riders will be able to look online to see where buses are located, see if there are delays, and see the exact times for pick-up and delivery to their destinations. New phone applications are also being developed to streamline the information.

The real-time bus locator and GPS mapping portions of the AVL system are in testing and should be available in early 2012. For the full story, click here.
