Tablets are mounted in the bus so drivers can easily keep track of when they’re running ahead or behind schedule by glancing at the colored bars, each representing a minute, instead of conversing with dispatchers. Red bars tell drivers to slow down, green bars to proceed normally. The blue bars indicate the driver is on schedule.
