GPS for Wellington buses and trains

The Dom Post reports that it looks likely that GPS will be installed on Wellington buses and trains, so that passengers can see how far away they are from their stop.

This is very common overseas and even in other NZ cities.  It is a good idea.

I’m a fairly regular bus user, and the standard timetables are not hugely reliable.  But being able to get an accurate prediction on how far away the next bus is, would I am sure encourage greater use of the buses.

Would be great if they also allow one to see the GPS info from a website.  Then you don’t have to get to the bus stop, to see how far away the bus is.  You can look it up and time your departure to coincide.
