A $49.5 milion dollar contract to purchase high tech public transportation buses for Staten Island will result in patrons having the conveniences of plugging in laptop computers, cell phones, and more.  In addition, the Metropolitan Transit Authority reports Staten Island bus patrons will soon have the ability to use a GPS tracking application to track the location of any bus at any time via their computer or smart phone.

GPS tracking installed on the new buses will allow patrons the convenience of knowing if their bus is running on time, resulting in a more reliable, user-friendly public transportaton system.  New Yorkers endure some of the longest commute times in the nation.

Many major cities are now offering GPS tracking of their public transportation system for the convenience of their patrons.  Here’s another story about GPS tracking for city buses.
