Now, CTU to digitally monitor each bus

Chandigarh, August 21

In a major stride towards digitisation of the transport system, the Chandigarh Transport Undertaking (CTU) today launched its Independent Transport System.

UT Administrator VP Singh Badnore launched the system in the presence of Adviser Manoj Parida, Transport Secretary Harish Nayyar and Director (Transport) Uma Shankar Gupta.

How it will work

  • The new system will enable digital monitoring of the entire bus network in Chandigarh. There will be four cameras inside each bus to monitor the behaviour of the crew and passengers. The fleet will be monitored at the Central Control Room of the CTU.
  • An emergency button will be available, both for the driver and the passengers, to solicit urgent help from the police and ambulance, if needed.
  • The digital system will enable the Administration to monitor the exact location of buses, collection of revenue and the load of passengers on each route.

The digital system will enable the Administration to monitor the exact location of buses, collection of revenue and the load of passengers in each route. There will be a digital display of the timings of the buses in each bus queue shelter. The Central Control Room can have the data of every bus running in the city. Even passengers can download a mobile app and know the exact location and timings of the buses they need and alternative routes available for their travel.

The mobile application for consumers has been named "trycityBUS". By downloading it, passengers can get all information about the timings, fare, routes and location of the nearby bus stop.

The digital system has already been introduced in 100 buses covering 14 routes. Passengers information display screens have been installed at bus terminals in Sector 17 and 43, at the railway station and 12 other bus queue shelters. The CTU is planning to cover the entire fleet of 350 buses on 64 routes in the next few months. The digitised transport management system will be the first step towards making Chandigarh a smart city. — TNS
