The Ministry for Transport, Traffic and Technical Services have announced the launch of a new Gibraltar Bus Company Website which will be featuring the anticipated Bus Tracker WebApp.
The Bus Tracking WebApp developed by the Govt's Information Technology & Logistics Department will provide a real-time bus tracking service that will cover working routes offered by the Gibraltar Bus Company. The launch will, in the first instance, feature Routes 2 and 3 with further routes being developed soon.
The Gibraltar Bus Tracker WebApp will offer riders real-time bus information. From any smart phone or desktop computer with internet access, citizens will be able to access the website, select a bus route and see a user friendly transit map that will display where buses are located within the given route. The buses will move across the map in real-time.
"We know where our buses are and so should you! The Gibraltar Bus Tracker Web App is yet another way in which we are trying to improve our service. Why wait for the bus when you can meet it?" said the Govt in their press release.
The Ministry have also announced, that Routes 4 and 9 are being modified for an enhanced and more efficient service. And, in light of these modifications, a new pilot Route 6 will be commencing Monday 18th April. The Route starts at Market Place Terminus, proceeding down Waterport Road to Mid-Harbour Estate via St Bernard’s Hospital, turning at the roundabout and back along the same route.
The new pilot Route 6 and modifications to existing Routes 4 and 9 are available to the public on the new Gibraltar Bus Company Website and at each bus stop.
The Minister for Transport, Traffic and Technical Services Paul Balban said:
“I am very happy to see the launch of the Gibraltar Bus Tracker WebApp and the updated website platform. I would like to thank the Gibraltar Bus Company and the IT & LD for their continuing hard work which will improve the public transport experience of bus users by facilitating real time information.”
