METRO Board to Consider Investment in Technology

Portland Daily Sun:
[T]he board will consider spending another $75,000
for new technology that offers real-time updates on arrival times that bus
riders could access via smart phones, iPads or personal computers.
Last month, Metro’s board deadlocked 5-5 about
whether to spend the additional $75,000 or so for the AVL devices, software and
installation on every bus--which is just 20 percent of the total cost.
Portland’s five members supported the proposal while members from Falmouth and
Westbrook opposed it.
