GIS in All Taiwan Buses Required

All bus operators in Taiwan will be required to install a geographic information system (GIS) in all their vehicles by the end of 2012 following the passage of an amendment to transport industry regulations, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) announced Thursday.

The equipment will allow people waiting at bus stops to know exactly when their bus will arrive, an MOTC official said, adding that the government will pay all the installation expenses.

According to MOTC statistics, some of the buses operating in 14 counties and cities are already equipped with GIS.
