You no longer have to wait for the bus to stop. Real-Time Bus Service is going to be launched in Kolkata this time. As a result, the location of the bus can be found by turning the hand on the screen of the mobile. All you have to do is write where you want to go.
In that case, all you have to do is go to G Map and enter your location and destination. Google will show you which buses will run on that route, how much is the fare, and even how far it is. You will also know how long it will take to arrive at the specified stop.

Earlier, passengers had to download an app called Pathadisha to know the location of the official bus. But now, you don’t have to download any app separately. The location of all government buses can be found by searching Google. It is learned that Google will also bring private buses under this service in the future. As a result, it will be much more convenient for passengers to travel by bus, said Rajnabir Singh Kapoor, MD, West Bengal Transport Corporation.
Corporation officials say passengers no longer have to worry about when the next bus will arrive or how far it is. The electronic Ticketing Machine (ETM) will have GPS. As a result, the bus can be easily tracked. You can also purchase tickets through ATM. These modern ATMs will be with every conductor. Passengers had to stand at the stop for so long and wait for the bus.
In many cases, they would take a break during the journey to reach the destination thinking that the bus would not come. It would have cost a lot more. Hopefully, that day will end this time.
