Digitizing over 500 routes of the Provincial Learner Transport Scheme
GoMetro as a Service Provider set out to survey the 527 routes in their Learner Transport Scheme with Global Positioning System devices. The surveys included recording all the stops along a route where learners were picked up and dropped at their schools.
The technology behind the mapping project, GoMetro Pro, is a mobile transit app, designed to map public transport routes, stops and other public transport related information. The app is designed to function with or without internet connectivity.
The mapped data uploaded from the App, is stored in GoMetro’s Dataportal. Our GoMetro Pro technology then collects, collates and displays the geospatial transport data on a map using an automated data validation processes.
