The TSRTC Hyderabad city buses app for real time information on the arrival of buses are in for better times. The TSRTC has started testing its GPRS based android mobile app that gives live information on the movement of buses.
The app, Hyderabad Metro Buses, that is available on the Google app store, will track Metro Express, Metro Deluxe and AC buses. Once the bugs are ironed out, the app will be extended to all city buses.
After more than two years of deliberation, the live tracking system now covers 1,600 buses in Hyderabad. The Hyderabad Metro Buses app is expected to bring in the next level of commuting with real time information for commuters.
Covering more than 24,000 buses which comprises the largest fleet of buses in the world with GPRS tracking and putting them on the city wise apps will be a time consuming process.
