I-Ride Trolleys are rolling out a new fleet of 15 trolleys equipped with state-of-the-art automated vehicle location systems (AVLS) known as NextBus. With GPS tracking, NextBus technology will provide predicted vehicle arrival information and live maps to visitors on International Drive.
I-Ride Trolley information is available through the Internet, smartphones and text messaging. Beginning this spring, each of the 105 Trolley stops will provide a QR code that visitors will be able to scan to find information as to when the NextTrolley is available. In addition, the new trolley equipment includes security cameras on each vehicle, automatic passenger counters, automated stop announcement system, LED destination signage and LED exterior accent lighting visible day and night.
The trolley’s are also going green. To become more eco-friendly, the new trolleys are equipped with Clean Diesel Technology (CDT) engines.
The trolleys operate from 8 a.m. until 10:30 p.m. daily all along International Drive and beyond.
