Passengers in Košický kraj will be able to know current bus position information

Since December 14, Kosice region (KSK) offers current bus position information at the website www.mojbus.sk. As the KSK speaker, Zuzana Bobríková, informed on Friday, the purpose of the website is not to replace the transport search engines, but rather include the information about the actual bus arrivals to bus stops and other data.

KSK, as the public transport authority, this way improves the passenger awareness using the internet and mobile application www.mojbus.sk. The information system is functional thanks to the cooperation with bus transport providers Eurobus, a.s. and ARRIVA Michalovce, a.s. and the company Transdata, s.r.o., which provides the dispatching system.

„The dispatching system is based on the fact that every regional bus has a GPS module, which allows the monitoring of its current position. This information is now available to passengers at the website www.mojbus.sk. The users need a mobile phone with internet connection and turned on localization services,“ explains Radovan Hužvík from the KSK Department of transportation.

The website, which is primarily designed for mobile users, provides information about current bus positions. It also shows the closest bus stops according to the passenger position (on a map) and current departures of busses from the bus stop, including the true time of their arrival and departure. This way, the passenger using the mobile application gains an overview of the nearby bus connections according to his/her position (on the map), about the current connection between the two given stops and about the arrivals of buses at the given stops.

Currently, three providers offer this information online – eurobus, a.s. (regional and city transport Spišská Nová Ves and Rožňava), ARRIVA Michalovce, a.s. (regional and city transport Trebišov), Bus Karpaty, s.r.o. Stará Ľubovňa (regional transport).

The passengers can learn about the new opportunity to access current information on the tickets and at the bus stops. All new timetables, valid from December 14, include the website address www.mojbus.sk.
