With the intent of making travelling in public transport a smoother and more reliable experience for commuters, the Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System (DIMTS) has launched the Delhi Transit Bus Info application. Providing vital information on the estimated time of arrival of buses, routes and locations of bus stops, the application aims at helping passengers get all the information at the click of a button, all in real time.
The application will provide details on the estimated time of arrival, route details, track location of a bus, bus schedule, location of bus stop, and trip planner.
“The Delhi Transit Bus Info application will be available both on the Internet and on android-based devices. Bus passengers can either go on to the DIMTS website www.dimts.in and click on ‘Bus information for orange-coloured Delhi transit buses’ or view the application on the beta version ‘Delhi Transit Bus Info’, which can be downloaded from Google Play Store,” said a DIMTS statement.
Stating that “the beta version of the application is currently available for devices working on the android platform,” the statement said: “It will be extended to other platforms like iOS, Blackberry and Symbian.”
The application is currently available for only orange-coloured Delhi ransit or cluster buses, except for the trip planner feature, which gives data on DTC bus routes also. However, DIMTS added that the information for DTC-operated buses for the rest of the features will be integrated into the application soon.
Under the project, bus users will also be able to give their feedback on the system through a feedback form that is available both on the website as well as the phone application. DIMTS has launched the test version to invite a candid feedback from the public and further improve the application.
