Two-million dollars in grant funding will be put to work improving technology for Columbia, Missouri’s city bus transportation system, including the possible addition of a GPS tracking system to the city’s bus fleet, and the addition of natural gas powered buses.

The GPS tracking systems would allow smart phone users to view the location and arrival information of each bus.

Other technologically-advanced considerations include auto-counting of passengers and length of individual bus rides with the goal of creating a more efficient public transportation system for the city.
