Toronto Transit unveils vehicle arrival notification pilot

Posted on December 16, 2008

The Toronto Transit Commission launched its next vehicle arrival notification system.

Customers will be able to find out when their next bus or streetcar will arrive by information displayed on screens in subway stations or at select TTC stops.

Display screens are installed at Spadina and Union Stations. Additional screens will be installed at additional subway stations and select on-street stops in concert with the City of Toronto’s Street Furniture Program.

Work to allow customers to be able to use SMS Text for information about next vehicle arrival information on all TTC surface routes begins in 2009. The final project rollout will include a unique identifier for each vehicle stop to allow patrons to obtain specific stop information via wireless technologies (i.e. Internet and/or SMS text messaging).

The current project budget is $5.2 million.
