Didn’t we already have a system in Exeter?

Exeter has had a basic RTI system in place for ten years. This used old technology and relied on buses triggering a small number of fixed beacons around the city. Improvements in technology, and particularly the new generation of smart card ticket machines used on modern buses, allows each bus to be continually tracked for its entire journey.

In addition, the new system covers services across the whole of Devon and Torbay, not just Exeter.
