Quote from: ozbob on October 16, 2014, 12:33:01 PMMedia release 16th October 2014SEQ: Real time tracking, buses, trains, trams and ferries welcomed!RAIL Back On Track (http://backontrack.org) a web based community support group for rail and public transport and an advocate for public transport passengers has welcomed today's announcement of real time tracking roll out (1).Robert Dow, Spokesman for RAIL Back On Track said:"Much of south-east Queensland has poor service frequency. It is very useful to be able to check real time where the bus, train, tram or ferry actually is and when it will arrive.""For example, standing at my local bus stop at Curnow St Goodna, waiting for the 524 bus can be bit of mystery. A one hour out of peak frequency (30 min peak) means if the bus does not show, it is difficult to know what to do. Is the bus late, has it been cancelled? With real time tracking at least there is a chance of making a rational decision.""Real time bus tracking will be of great benefit to all, but particularly in areas of low service frequency (2).""Thanks to TransLink, Cubic and the Queensland Government for advancing this initiative."References:1. http://www.scottemerson.com.au/media/media-releases/569-real-time-to-roll-out-in-south-east-queensland.html2. http://railbotforum.org/mbs/index.php?topic=10885.0Contact:Robert DowAdministrationadmin@backontrack.orgRAIL Back On Track http://backontrack.org

Quote from: ezekial on December 18, 2014, 21:12:09 PMI got a pleasant surprise I was on the 412 today, after wondering why I couldn't see the 'bus stopping' light I realised - an onboad passenger info screen had been installed! It seemed slightly smaller than the ones on the CityGliders - a bit less tall and maybe same width. Also seemed to have a different interface but showed the same info - time and 'bus stopping' at the bottom (no route info yet) and had been set with..... the Brisbane City logo as the wallpaper I've been seeing the new DCUs all over for a while since seeing Otto's post, seems like a fast roll out - and in other news the City Loop appears to have been christened with route # 40 and the Spring Hill loop with 30.
