People who use the transit system in Kamloops will have more certainty about commuting once the NextRide technology is replaced this month.
Starting on Nov. 20, the new Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) hardware will be installed on all buses in Kamloops.
That will see new digital passenger information displays installed, which will offer trip information to passengers including multiple upcoming stops, current route and service alerts.
No service interruptions are expected during the replacement process and riders will be able to continue using smartphone devices and desktop services to see the real-time location of their bus.
However, the NextRide desktop tool will no longer be available after Nov. 20.
Customers looking to plan their trip will be advised to use the BC Transit website and other real-time planning tools like the Transit app, Google maps or the rider’s guide.
