VTPIS means vehicle Tracking & Passenger information System. VTPIS project is aimed at providing real time bus arrival information to commuters, increasing commuter safety, reducing operational costs and improving operational efficiency by installing GPS tracking device inside the bus. At present the project is implemented in all city Metro type buses of Vijayawada, Visakapatnam and Tirupati cities and all special type buses being operated on routes Vijayawada to Tirupati/Bangalore/Chennai and Hyderabad to Bangalore via Kurnool.
VTPIS will provide time information of bus arrival at bus stop through SMS , Mobile App (Android) and commuter portal at specific bus stop location. VTPIS helps the commuters to plan the trip to the bus stop and reduce the waiting times by knowing the expected time of arrival (ETA) of the buses at the particular bus stop.
