GPS Tracking and Control of Bus Fleets


Works with any mobile device ( Smartphones, Laptops, Tablets) using a Web Browser connected to the Internet





Datalink Systems has been designing AVL and wireless data tracking software since 1996. Our latest development provides live status and location updates of local  bus fleets. We can provide MDT messaging terminals or "black box" system control. Click on panels for more information.

Gatlinburg, Tennessee was our first client. They needed a system that would update and display the location of each tourist trolley bus and its ETA (estimated time of arrival) at each route stop.


Each status update is transmitted over a wireless network to a DataGate processing hub, normally installed in the bus operator's computer which processes the data and displays it on a website live map accessible on-line, including smartphones, by the general public. The same live map screen is displayed at the main bus depot.


  • Driver status selection buttons
  • Emergency button
  • Two-way text messaging
  • Route selection button
  • Traffic delay button
  • Driver ID entry
  • Remote engine lock out (hijacking)
  • Emergency and break-down alert
  • Engine computer interface (add on)
  • Buses can be polled for immediate GPS update


Datalink's BusLink can be custom developed to meet the unique needs of each fleet operator. Each bus route is separately tracked and color coded for easy viewing by the public.

Kenwood NEXEDGE radios

BusLink requires GPS updates every minute in order to effectively provide Bus location reporting. This would require a NX mobile radio to be dedicated to data with occasional voice traffic. Alternatively, cellular M2M data only service can be incorporated.  Contact Datalink for complete details.


BusLink works most effectively over GSM cellular networks. Datalink Systems Inc., can provide M2M cellular services covering the USA and Canada with cross border roaming.

GSM M2M data service can also be an option for Kenwood LMR Dealers where data transmissions are interfering with voice transmissions. M2M data services can be resold by Kenwood dealers, providing an additional monthly revenue stream
