The first of 30 PMS units was mounted and displayed on a Tacirua Transport bus in Suva yesterday.

Fiji’s Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama was on hand to witness and test the new system.

Foneology director James Trusler said the machine, the first of its kind in Fiji, has a GPS detector that can keep track of the location of all buses in a company’s fleet.

The machine also features a live stream CCTV, keeps track of the number of passengers, the tickets issued by the driver including the bus speed limits.

The machine which is made in China will have its card sold at any Vodafone and Foneology outlet around Fiji.

The Fiji Bus Operators Association is expected to issue a statement later on the installation of the system in buses locally.
