Automatic Vehicle Location System launch by CTU

Automatic Vehicle Location System (AVLS) Project of CTU was launched by Sh. V.P. Singh Badnore, the Governor Punjab & Administrator, U.T. Chandigarh at Punjab Raj Bhawan. With the launch of the system, Chandigarh Transport Undertaking has taken a step further to bring information technology in its operation. Envisaged in September-2016, the project was completed in January-2017 by the Chandigarh Transport Undertaking. Post which, the project was put on testing for two months.
The Project provides the live positioning of all Inter-State Buses (Approx 130 Nos) of CTU. It also gives the Expected Time of Arrival (ETA) for all Bus stops on the way as well as final Destination of the Journey. The expected Time of Departure is also given for all the Bus Stops (including ISBT-17 & ISBT-43) for CTU buses. The calculation of ETA is automatically updated as per Traffic congestion on route.
All the information is available through an Android Based Mobile App “CTU Bus Tracker” which is available free on Google Play Store. The information on buses can also be found on CTU website CTU has also installed two Passenger Information screens on the two ISBTs. In the coming days, more screens shall be put up by CTU. This project shall prove to be highly beneficial for the CTU Management as it shall be able to monitor the Schedule/ Route of the buses and any deviation therein shall be highlighted automatically. It shall enforce the time adherence & quality of service.
