Newport Transport has chosen Idox Transport in partnership with Parkeon to provide their next generation RTPI system for their Bus services across the region.

The system will get it's positioning and vehicle details directly from the Parkeon Ticket Machine (Wayfarer200) using the industry standard RTIG protocols. This does away with the need for an on-vehicle "black box" approach that has been the traditional method for delivering bus location information.

In addition to this Newport Transport is taking direct responsibility for electronic sign infrastructure on street. The project will also initially deliver 45 refurbished signs to key locations across the city.
