An online intelligent transportation system (ITS) was officially launched by the provincial department of transportation in Kunming yesterday (December 23) to provide useful transport information for both PC users and mobile phone users.
Residents are available to book taxis by phones, as the system provides local residents with informations about non-loaded taxis nearby.
Logging in the website, local residents can also consult bus stops and routes to choose the most appropriate course, or check buses' location and the required waiting time.
Road navigation for expressways, gas stations, service areas, etc across the province is also in service online.
Mobile phones using Android system or iPhone system are all available to download the intelligent transportation system.
Informations about tickets prices as well as traffic condition of road, railway and airline transportation in the province will be issued on the website.
However, buying tickets for intercity buses in the province has not been in service yet.
Intelligent transportation system is the most valid approach accepted worldwide to solve the increasing transportation issues in cities with distinctly low cost-effectiveness ratio.
