Tri Delta Transit adds real-time arrival information – 511 Contra Costa

Tri Delta Transit adds real-time arrival information

Tri Delta Transit, East Contra Costa County’s public transit authority, is in the process of adding GPS-based vehicle locator system for its 69 buses. The system is expected to go live in the next three months after it has been thoroughly tested.
According to Steve Ponte, the Chief Operating Officer for Tri Delta Transit, the top phone inquiry from riders is “When is the next bus going to be here?” With the new system, riders will be able to access real-time arrival information via text message, calling an automated phone line, or online with a laptop or cell phone. At the line’s most popular stops, information for the next bus will be displayed on LED signs.
New features important for disabled riders include verbal announcements and textual displays of the next stop inside of buses.
Tri Delta Transit will join BART, AC Transit and a number of other transit agencies in having real-time information available to riders.
