TrackABus NZ has launched real time services for the public in Invercargill, Nelson, Queenstown, Rotorua and Taranaki. We aim to provide real time services to all the small urban bus services in New Zealand to bring this valuable aid to the travelling public across the country.

The TrackABus service for Invercargill went live in April 2015 after a three month trial. Real time information is provided to the travelling public of Invercargill via web, mobile web and SMS services. The system uses TrackABus Locator Units to track the 8 urban vehicles feeding into a fully automated system that requires minimal management from GoBus staff. tracking >>

The Nelson City Council chose to provide real time services to the public using the TrackABus system and the solution was installed, tuned and published in March 2019. TrackABus continues to work with the council to provide GTFS and other transport IT related services. Electronic signage for key stops and the provision of data to the Transit App are currently in development. Tracking for the weekend Late Bus service is also being finalised. tracking >>

The Bay of Plenty Regional Council commissioned a TrackABus real time service for the Rotorua urban service in November 2015. An initial automated service, based on a 3rd party GPS feed, was developed but was replaced by a service based on TrackABus locator units in 2016. Service data was used to help in a route fine tuning in 2016 after a major service review in 2016 and the system has been in general use since.. tracking >>

The TrackABus service for the Connector bus service in Taranaki went live in April 2015. The Connector service is a long distance commuter bus that links towns in Taranaki with New Plymouth. The system uses an ERoad AVL feed to track the Connector vehicle feeding this information into a fully automated system that requires minimal management from regional council staff. tracking >>
