Last week I had a rare chance of using State Transport Buses of Gujarat. I was quite surprised when I saw conductor carrying a small POS kind of machine to punch and print the ticket. I was surprised even more when on the backside of the ticket I saw their web address and SMS based service to know the bus schedule. GSRTC has really gone a step ahead and implemented technology in a smaller way.
Today GSRTC has all the depots connected with GSWAN. GSRTC is the first in implementing GPS and GPRS based bus tracking for luxury buses. Further it has also implemented biometric solution to track the staff attendance.
