Redbus.in,one of the foremost online bus reservation services in India has updated its Android mobile app to launch LIVE-tracking service in collaboration with Asset Tracker, to know the exact location of the running buses. Bus operators working in tandem with redbus have installed GPS trackers in accordance to the required service. Just a few buses are equipped with GPS trackers as of now, but pretty soon all the buses will be rounded up. The app will now pin-point the exact location of your bus on Google Map.
Once the ticket is booked via redbus, an SMS would be sent to the user with a specific link to track down the bus in real-time. Also, to ease up your work, you’ll even be given the bus’s registration number. The Android App even provides integration with alerts, so you get a notification from redbus 30 minutes prior to your journey (provided your data connection is on). The location gets updated at regular intervals.
