Deadwood Approves Purchase of Trolley Tracking System

The Deadwood City Commission recently approved purchasing tracking mechanisms for the city’s trolley system, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The commission hopes the new products and services will help the city provide better transportation.

The new tracking system will cost approximately $39,000 and will be implemented by mid-June. The city will purchase a GeoEvent server for $19,000 as well as engineering, development, training and technical services for $20,000. The total project allocation will be drawn from parking and transportation and historic preservation funds.

The trolley tracker’s public facing side will allow riders to track the location of trolleys via mobile and desktop devices. On the private side, city staff will be able to monitor trolley activities, including the duration of stop times.
