Guelph Transit first Canadian system to use GPS technology to help riders plan trips

Riders can use the Internet, handheld devices, or their telephones to receive accurate, real-time arrival and departure information.

The new system, Next Bus, features Web-based map displays with local streets and routes, and real-time information available on the web. It will also incorporate dynamic transit display signs at key locations around the city. One such sign is already in place at Stone Road Mall.

Guelph is the first Canadian city to implement the Next Bus system comprehensively across its entire transit system.
