SMTD To Upgrade Technology

Springfield Mass Transit District is getting an upgrade to an intelligent transportation system.


The State Journal-Register reports that the capital city’s public transportation system will soon be developing a mobile app for passengers, a computer-aided dispatch system, a vehicle tracking system that uses GPS, and automated voice announcement system and other technologies.


The total cost is $1.8 million, with over $800,000 coming from federal grants.


SMTD administrators hope to start phasing the new technologies in sometime next year.
